Hi,

I'm putting together a home server, and have acquired an LSI 4x PCI Express SATA RAID card. Is it possible to use a board with on board video and put the RAID card in the PCI express slot normally used for video?

Of course there are SLI PCI Express motherboards too. I guess I am not clear as to whether PCI express slots that are normally used for video can be used fo something else.

Many boards I see have a secondary PCI Express slot but it is only 1x.

Prefer on board video, and on board gigabit network.

Any board suggestions?

Thanks,
Stan

The RAID card will work fine in any PCI-e slot no worries.
