PCI-E 1.1 vs PCI-E 1.0 ?

That motherboard is PCIe 1.1.

Don't even worry about the difference between 1.0 and 1.1, the current version is 2.0. There is still not any tangible benefits to 2.0 unless you run Quad GPU setups.

Spenstar, welcome to the forums!

You guys are both right... the differences are exceptionally minor and there's no GPUs out there that will take advantage of all the bandwidth, at least outside of high-end multi-GPU configurations. PCI-E 3.0 will bring a bit more to the table than 2.0 did, which mainly just increased bandwidth.
