PCI Express 2.0 x16 questions...
Ok, I am saving for a new computer and I am trying to put together a list of parts with a price so I know what I'm shooting for. Anyways I noticed that most good video cards are PCI Express 2.0 x16 and most motherboards are just PCI Express x16. So my question is can a PCI Express 2.0 x16 video card be used in a PCI express x16 motherboard?
