Asus P5QL Pro - Dual Width x16 Slot? Tags: Asus Graphics Cards Motherboards Last response: March 22, 2009 2:32 PM in Motherboards Share Shep March 22, 2009 1:53:48 PM Hello, I was wondering if someone could help me with this? I currently have an Asus P5QL Pro Mobo and it has 1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 2 x PCIe x1 3 x PCI. However I was recently looking to purchase a graphics card, the XFX Geforce GTX 260, but it states that i need a dual width x16 graphics slot. Would my mobo be compatible with this graphics card, or will I need to upgrade? Also, do all of the GTX 260's need a dual width x16 slot? Thanks, any help is appreciated. Shep.

Therefore the PCI-E x1 slot next to the x16 slot will be covered by the video card, making it useless. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
