Pcie x1 in pcie x16 slot

i know that i can use a pcie x1 card in a pcie x16 slot, but lets just say i have a crossfirex capable motherboard with 2 x16 slots, one running at x16 and one running at x8, and i only have one graphics card. can i use the one graphics card in the first x16 slot and have a pcie x1 sound card in the other x16 slot without effecting the bandwidth on the slot that my graphics card uses?

  1. no it won't affect the band width and even if it did it would be very minimal, not noticeable
