    I was thinking about picking up a nvidia rtx 2060 super and was wondering how much performance will I lose out of the card if I put it in a pcie 2.0 motherboard?

    Uh no. That's a terrible video.
    That GPU will not saturate a PCIe 2.0 bus. So a percent or two at most. Whatever performance difference you have compared to a system using PCIe 3.0 is going to be primarily other factors... like a faster processor and memory.

    Don't even worry about it.

    This guy used 2 separate CPUs, one I7 4xxx and one 2xxx .... lol, no wonder the results are lower. This video is pretty terrible

    Also, OP, you wont lose much of a performance, but still be sure to OC everything you can.

    I guess, just make sure it's PCIE 2.0 x16, then you'd be fine. CPU's a different topic then.

    I was gaming on a X58 system for a very long time. :) i7 950 @ 4GHz + R390 + 18GB RAM. PCIE 2.0 wasn't an issue using x16 slot.
