    no. pce 2.0 x16 is still very fast. no gpu has been made yet that maxes out the 2.0 bandwidth. you will not be losing any performance whatsoever

    PCI Express 2.1 supports a large proportion of the management, support, and troubleshooting systems planned for full implementation in PCI Express 3.0. However, the speed is the same as PCI Express 2.0.
