    Will you actually get more bandwidth though as the on-chip PCI-e will still be 2.0 based and the PCH still has to connect over the bandwidth strangled DMI.

    I'm calling marketing gimmick.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Yes.

    Ivy Bridge is likely to be PCIe 3.0, so in conjuction with this board provide pcie 3.0. And what does the PCH have to do with anything?

    I just read that ivy bridge processor will work in those motherboards and be able to take full advantage of the pci 3.0 lanes.
