They are PCI-E 3.0 which means 8x on 2.0 = 16x on 3.0 so 8x 8x on 3.0 would be like 16x 16x on 2.0 - its double the bandwidth so there shouldnt be any drawbacks providing the CPU used is an Intel IB chip and the GPU itself supports PCI-E 3.0

(almost confused myself while writing that...)

As much as I am sick of seeing frigging blue this and blue that, I would still go the Asus route!

Gigabyte has really gone downhill here lately.
