Will PCIe 2.0 GPUs run with this motherboard?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello!

Will the ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 Motherboard run PCIe 2.0 GPUs just fine? There are both, PCIe 3.0 and 2.0 slots on this board. Will PCIe 2.0 cards also work with the PCIe 3.0 slots?

I'm planning to buy this motherboard, but I'm not sure if things will be running optimal when Ivy Bridge and PCI Express is released totally along with the PCIe 3.0 GPUs.

Could someone answer these questions?
Thank you!

Yes, the PCI 3.0 will only be activated if an Ivy Bridge CPU is installed.

Yes.

1.0 / 2.0 / 3.0 are just different revisions of the SAME slot. They are all physically the same slot, and forwards and backwards compatible with all PCIe x16 cards.
