My System Specs

Default PCI-E 3.0

Question about PCI-E 3.0.

I'm seeing pretty much all new graphics cards coming out with PCI-E 3.0 support to go along with the motherboards that started coming out late last year. Are these cards making full use of the bandwidth that is available with PCI-E 3.0?

Or,

If one were to say, drop in a 680gtx in a PCI-E 2.0, would there be serious bottleneck issues due to the lesser bandwidth of the slot?

Or,

It will be sometime before anything actually utilizes that much bandwidth?
