Might be using it sometime next year
I bought this board for the sole purpose of building a new gaming rig with an Athlon64 and pci-e card (check my specs). I have only run this board with the Sapphire GTO2 card. All I can say is 'it ****ing smokes'.
I play mainly Americas Army online. There are guys there with newer supposedly faster cards that are getting half my FPS. Now this is largely due to the GPU, but some credit must go to the board also. I have never had a hitch. I have OC'd the board to 2550, on a Venice 3500.
So in answer to your question, the pci-e slot works fine for me.
If I was buying a VC today I would be looking at the Radeon X1900XT or XTX.
