I'm about to build my own pc and not too sure about one thing. I was looking for this motherboard ASUS P5K SE INTEL P35 LGA775 ATX 1333FSB ICH9 PENTIUM D & CORE 2. It has 1 x PCI-E x16; 3 x PCI-E x1; 2 x PCI. Also i had a look at NVIDIA GEFORCE 9600GT 512MB PCIE HDCP DUAL OUTPUT and seems like they will go well together but then at the more closer look I've noticed that nvidia requires PCI-E 2.0 x16. So my question: Is PCI-E x16 the same thing as PCI-E 2.0 x16 or not? In case if they are not the same will I notice any difference while playing games?
here is the rest of my small build )
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E7200 2.53GHZ 3M 1066FSB LGA775
CORSAIR 450W VX-450 ATX POWER SUPPLY 120MM FAN
HYNIX 2GB DDR2 800 PC6400 DIMM MEMORY
ICUTE ZL02-3G-BB BLACK CASE NO PSU
it will round up around NZ$580-600 all together.
thx for your help :)
