When Maxwell comes out, will it use the PCI-Express 3.0 slots or a new expansion slot? Also will they require a Broadwell CPU or will Haswell do just fine?

I was just wondering because I was looking at building a PC, and was thinking of using a cheaper graphics card now and then switching to Maxwell when it comes out, but I'm worried that that would mean that I would have to buy a new motherboard too.

Chances are PCI-Express is here to stay and it's forward and backwards compatible. And the only difference between versions is the available bandwidth to the card.

And even then, the most high-end graphics cards are fine on a PCI-Express 2.0 x4 slot.
