If you have the 610 or 630 chip video card, being the X2400 and X2600, suppposedly you have a PCIe 2.0 ready video card. Now all that is needed is a X-38 or RD780/790 motherboard to take advantage of it. Tests have shown on PCIe 2.0 motherboards to have increased scores on heavy bandwidth tests, notably some of the vertex tests on 3DMark06. Others showed no improvement, but overall, on these two chips, you should get a decent increase, up to 10 percent, and more in Crossfire.
