How can I identify that a certain motherboard has PCI-E 2.0 support before I buy it? I'm looking at some boards on the 'egg and it just says "PCI-E x16" and the like. How can I find out if it supports 2.0?

The only motherboards at the moment full supported PCI Express 2.0 are Intel X38, Nvidia Nforce 750i & 780i and AMD 770 & 780 & 790FX chipsets.

Right... I think.

And it WILL say 2.0 right after PCI Express 16x. Look at my motherboard for example, here (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131227) and find PCI Express 16x. Right now, it shows PCI Express 2.0 16x. It's various... Gotta read careful.

Oh ok cool. One more thing, does the 790FX support 4 HD 2600 XT's or only the 3800 series?

No it did not supported PCI Express 2.0.

Accorded to Intel P35 PDF document page 3 stated it supported PCI Express 1.1.
