Adding Graphics Card Using PCI-E x1 to PCI-E x16 USB 3.0 Extender on Single Card Slot Motherboard Will it work?

Hi Guys! Hopefully Someone could help. My question is: Can I use PCI-E Extender on PCI-Ex1 for mATX form motherboard. I have 880gms-e41 (FX) motherboard and it has only single PCI-Ex16, I want to add another graphics card using PCI-E x1 to PCI-E x16 USB 3.0 Extender. I wonder if would work. I just want to add graphics card on a Single Slot Motherboard.

And Second.... Will it work for Crossfire/SLI?

Thanks in advance!! :D :D :D

  1. An X1 slot can't supply the same power as an X16 slot. Does your adapter have supplemental power?

    worthless


    x1 bandwith is not good enough


    CF would be a mess
  3. Don't do it, it will not work well.
    SLI and crossfire require stable and consistant power, even more of a reason not to do it.
