Depending on the rest of the setup you would see a performance increase but I doubt it would double.
PCI-E 1.0 os 250 GB a second, PCI-E 2.0 is 500 GB a sec, and the newest PCI-E 3.0 is 1gb a second.

It's not worth the hassle. You would notice, at most, 2-3FPS performance increase, if any at all.

Little if any noticable difference.
