PCI vs PCIe x1 - in processing power Tags: Motherboards PCI AMD Product Last response: April 27, 2010 9:15 PM in Motherboards Share diznanl April 27, 2010 6:35:52 PM I just got an AMD Phenom II 1055t -- WOOT! The two mobos I'm looking at are essentially the same (right?) except ... one has more PCI vs PCI Express x1 slots.

GIGABYTE GA-770TA-UD3 AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Does PCI vs PCIe have an effect on processor cycles / performance? I'd like to stick my Creative XtremeGamer soundcard in there along with my TV tuner. Otherwise, I have no other PCI cards... This would be great for the 770TA I could settle for onboard sound and get the 770T if performance is going to be an issue. Which board is better? Thanks!

Also, it's 133MB max, vs. 400mb for PCIe x1 Can anyone confirm whether or not it is an issue in real world applications? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
