    Well after finally having getting a new graphics card, which is running swell by the way, i'm a bit concerned with the fact that my motherboard has PCI-E 16x 1.0

    Now my current card (HD7850) supports the new 3.0 version of PCI-E, so my question is if i'm losing any precious frames.. Thanks!

    the 3.0 cannot saturate the 2.0 as of yet. But not sure about the 1.0 I don't think at all as 1.0 bandwidth is 4 Gb

    Pci-e 1.0 x16 is equal to Pci-e 2.0 x8. You won't feel it.
