exactly. i did some benching the other night on the P5K3-Dlx with both an 8800GTS 512 and an 3870X2 and there was nothing about my scores that would suggest i was on a PCI-E 1.0 motherboard compared to any of the scores on HWBot with similar CPU clocks. heck, my scores were above average if anything. obviously not a direct head to head but from my 'seat of the pants' feel based on 3DMark scores, there is no difference.

if i get a chance i will do a direct comparison on the P5K3-Dlx/Maximus Extreme but my plate is pretty full so i doubt it will ever happen.
