ASRock Extreme4 Gen3 board.. questions

Thinking about springing on this board, but I would like some opinions about PCIe 3.0 and Ivy Bridge. The motherboard in my sig rig is negligible. Already returned it for a refund because of issues I was having. This board is slightly more expensive but looks great and has PCIe 3.0.

I was wondering, since the 3.0 standard removes the 20% overhead, will that make current 2.0 cards more efficient? Basically will I get more performance from my current 2.0 graphics card?

Also, will this board work with the upcoming Ivy Bridge when they are released?

It does not give you better performance than what you already have.
You aren't even maxing out pci-e 2.0 so there is no difference.
Also it supposed to work with ivy bridge.
But never know how it works till it really comes out...

If you dont have an ivy bridge cpu plugged in, pci-e slots works at 2.0 standard from the sandy bridge lanes.
