    Cool
    I believe it has to do with your motherboard, like if your motherboard can run a 3.0 graphics card

    If your mobo has a 3.0 pci e slot then its a card you can use, if you don't then you don't want to buy that card.

    PCI Express
    3.0 = Generation 3.
    x16 = Amount of bandwidth.

    If a card is compatible with PCIe Gen 3 then it's also backwards compatible with the other generations.
    Only the newer motherboards post 2011 have gen 3 compatibility.

    Devilish
    PCI 3.0 = two times the bandwidth of PCI 2.0
    x16 = how many connectors you PCI slot has, which in this case, is the most.
