Hey you lovelies,
since I´ve already (successfully) tested the Quadro K4200 and K2200 (which is currently in use), I wonder if it´d make sense to get a K5200.
It´s PCIE Gen3 afaik, not sure it will run in a Gen2 system, so I figured asking the experts over here might be a good idea before buying said card.
Thanks in advance

I have GTX-1070 in my Z400. I use to have a pair of them but it got too hot even though the "inside" one was a hybrid. The X5680 is also liquid cooled. The system runs at Gen2 so the board downgrades to gen2
If you think this reply was helpful, please mark it as so or as a solution.. Thank You!

PCI-E generations are backwards and forward compatible,
you can install a pcie 3 card in a pcie 2 system and it will work fine, just slower
same for installing a pcie 2 card in a pcie 3 based system, the card will run at pcie 2 speeds
personally, unless the newer card has a feature that you current card does not ( such as more vram or directx 12) i would not upgrade
