No biggy. Using PCI-E 2.0 to its full extent is hard to do currently so PCI-E 3.0 might not be as helpful as 2.0 is currently unless we are looking forward to some really fast consumer grade SSD's in the near future that are affordable.
Yeah, there's hardly any difference between running PC-E 2.0 at 16x and 8x (8x is equivalent of 16x PCI-E 1.0). Dual 8x 2.0 is fine for most Crossfire and SLI anyway, unless you are pairing up GTX 295s or Radeon 4870s. PCI-E 3.0 can take its time because once it comes 4.0 really shouldn't be neccessary for a long time.
