Geforce 8800 GT and ATI HD 2950 PCI-E16x or PCI-E2.0?

By hello

  1. 1) I was wondering if any one knows what kind of PCI express going to be used by ATI HD 2950 and Geforce 8800 GT. I heard its going to be PCI-Express 2.0. If that’s the case, can I use a PCI-Express 2.0 card in my PCI-Express 16x slot?
    (my motherboard is P35)

    2) Can the ATI 2900Pro or Geforce 8800GTS out put 1080P on to a TV(SAMSUNG Model FP-T5084) or is it just 1080i? When I ask that question from ATI they said it can, but when I go to the flowing manufacture’s website, it said “HDMI output support all display resolutions up to 1920x1080i only”. Is there some other brand that can output 1080p using HDMI cables?

    Thanks a lot.)

    Pci-2.o is old technology. You may well have pci slots and be able to use that graphics card, but it will be one hell of a lot slower than the pci-e version.

    The 8800GT-No (not till next series)
    2950-Yes (from what I've seen)

    2.0 is supposed to be backward compatible (also from what I've seen)
