PCI 3.0 GPU on a PCI 2.0 motherboard?

As title suggests, I'm looking at picking up a GTX660 Ti for my PC. I have an Asus P5Q Pro Turbo that supports PCI 2.0. Will I have any problems with this? will the lack of bandwidth compared to a PCI 3.0 mobo even be noticeable?

Cheers

Bud

I went from using 2 670s on a PCI 2.0 mobo to a PCI 3.0 mobo and didn't notice any real differences in games. you may gain a few point in benchmarks however.

As for compatibility, the PCI 3.0 cards are fully backwards compatible with 2.0 motherboards.
