Would it work if i move the video card (ColorGraphic Xentera Quad Display PCI-e x16) ( that fits in my x4 slots ) in my PCI-e x16 slots so i can install my pci-e x4 nic in the appropriate slot ? im a bit mixed up because the lenght of the connector doesn't match... not like pci/agp where the connector lenght was standard/all the same, was pretty straight forward. thx for your help.
