I have a Asus m5 a97 r2.0 motherboard and it has a x4 PCIe slot an a x16 PCIe slot and my 760 is in the x4 slot. Would it benefit from the x16 slot at all? As far as i understand is that the x4 and x16 has do do with memry lanes or something like that and affects data speeds.

Yes, you should see a great improvement with switching PCI slots.

Yes, the memory bandwidth provided on the x16 lane will allow data to transfer between the graphics card and the other components on your computer much faster. You probably wont notice a night and day performance change but it's worth switching
