Hey guys!
This is my first thread on this forum so please forgive me if i make any mistakes. (also forgive my bad english, i'm an arab from Sweden)
So, i have two XFX Radeon HD 5770s and wonder if a motherboard with a PCie x16 and x4 will somehow decrease their preformance beacuse of the PCie x4? Im going to upgrade my GPUs later this year (to only one) but need to buy new CHEAP motherboard now because i'm Upgrading my pcu first (buying a fx-8350). But untill im upgrading my GPUs i still want to run some decent games (battlefield 4, Assasins Creed Black Flag) for the time being.
I have read other threads but there are allways specific answers for specific GPUs so please don't hate.
Thanks in advance!

Best solution

The PCIe x4 shouldn't really limit them in anyway, those cards aren't that powerful as to saturate the PCIe x4, only thing I would check is that if there's any report of problems with crossfire and the games you intend to play, some games get a nice boost, others it's nominal, others run worse so look around for any info related to those games.

Thank you very much RaDiKal_, Then i will buy the PCIe x16/x4 MOBO wich is cheaper than a x16/x16 MOBO.
