If a 2.0 card had more memory than a 1.0 card and supported higher res. I would agree

I was trying to say was that if you have to decide between a 2.0 and 1.0 card with virtually the same hardware (with exception to bus speed) the 1.0 card would likely be cheaper...

If there were 2 identical cards bedsides the fact of bus speeds, like on was pcie2 and one was pcie1, I guess it would make a little difference.  But I dont think they make cards that have pcie 1 and 2 versions

I don't think they do either. 

I was trying to say that if a 1.0 and 2.0 card are "virtually" the same (meaning there are slight differences), then a 2.0 card wouldn't make a difference in performance, and a 1.0 card would probably be cheaper..
