Hello everyone.  Hopefully a quick question or two for the experts...

I currently have (2) Radeon 5670s in CrossFire.  I have the opportunity to snag a 7770 for free.  Which leads to 2 questions:

1. The 7770 is a 3.0 card and my mobo only supports 2.0.  Will the 7770 function?  And,

2. Will I see an improvement moving from current situation to a 7770, assuming it works in a 2.0 slot?

Many thanks in advance for your help!
