It will cripple the card to be unplayable.

yeah i knew would have some reduction in performance but didn't think it would really justify the cost of a full system upgrade to get the full potential of SLI'd gtx 680"s on PCI-E 3.0 since my ASUS rampage II is still a very strong board although it's only got PCI-E 2.0 But the Rampage IV is looking kinda sexy lol

Did you bother looking at the link I put in there? It is basically an illustration of what Cap is saying.
