Why didn't you just make this part of your PCIe vs PCI-X question?

PCI Express transfers data at a speed of 250MB/S Per lane ,with a max of 32 lanes.

It allows you a total combined 8GB/S data transfer rate

Sreeth - 250 MB/s is the Gen1 limit. PCIe is up to Gen2 now with a 2X per lane speed, so it is no longer sufficient to just say "PCIe" without the generation qualifier.
