Hi, I have an Asrock FATAL1TY 990FX Motherboard, an EVGA GTX 770 and an Asus PCE-N15 Wireless Network Card. I know that the board has 2 x16 slots, 1 x4 slot and 2 x1 slots. So does that mean I can put the GPU in either for the x16 slots and the Wireless Network Card in either of the x1 slots? Or can the x4 slot be used for a GPU too?

Ideally you should put the gpu in the first PCIE x16 slot and the wifi card on the farthest slot available.
