Our Ask the Experts section has a new question, with Ovidiu in Romania wanting to know if 8x/8x SLI would hinder performance compared to 16x/16x.
I have a system with the following setup : AMD 955BE CPU, 4GB RAM, 850W PSU and an ASRock M3A785GXH/128M motherboard that has 3 PCIe slots.
One is 16x, the other is 8x and the last is 4x.
If I were to do a 2-way SLI setup with a GTX 660 (using the x16 and x8 slots), would the 8x slot impact performance?
For the moment I'm using a 1680x1050 monitor and in the future I am not planning on going any higher than 1920x1080.
