My new motherboard Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P has PCI Express 2.0 slots.
Since I bought it, a coworker is offering me a Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 3GB DDR5 (rev 2) for $50 ... but it is PCI Express 3.0
My instincts tell me I won't be noticing much of a performance difference by just keeping the 2.0 slot.
But, before I open the motherboard and do the upgrade next week, does anyone think it is worth replacing the MB to a PCIe 3.0 ?
Uses are Photoshop, Battlefield (multiplayer),etc.
