I wanna get 2 graphic cards (to support more than 4 monitors) and an Revo PCI SSD.
Now, they all need PCI-E 2.0 x16.
But all the mainboards I look at say this something like this:
3x PCI-E 2.0 x16 (x16/x16 or x16/x8/x8 SLI/CFX), 2x PCI-E x1, 1x PCI
5x PCI-E 2.0 x16 (x16/x16 or x16/x8/x8 CFX/4-Way-SLI), 1x PCI-E x1
Does that mean that I can either have 2 times an x16 card or or one x16 and two x8? Or that the x16 card just works with half the power if I put it into the x8?
Or did I completely miss the point here?
My last self made PC was back in the times of AGB...
