Upgrading to a 780 gtx.... motherboard question?

I have an ASRock z68 Extreme 4 (non Gen 3)

This board does not have PCIe 3.0 support.

Would the 780 gtx even work in this board or would I be losing out on performance if it does?

You're fine, you won't notice a drop in performance.

Haha, I'm upgradin' too and I posted a similar topic. Apparently most GPUs can't even max the bandwidth of PCI 2.0 yet, so yeah, you're good. God I love this board, it actually teaches me things.
