Will there be a performance impact with this?

Hello! :hello:
I was wondering if I installed this motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157188
plugged a HD 5XXX in the X16 slot and plugged this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813995004&Tpk=usb%203%20asus%20card
in the X4 would the card be put in 8X mode or something?

More about will performance impact this
  1. It is a PCIe slot not PCIe X16 slot so it will run at only the max speed of that slot. At the same time, it has no impact on your PCIe X16 slot in either single or dual mode.

    So I will be able to use 2 cards in crossfire in X8 mode and plug that ASUS card in the X4 slot? Because that thing needs a PCIe 4X slot (By the way I know the third slot is just a 4X slot with full length).
  3. Thank you!

    Yes... You will be able to run at x8,x8 for your GPU and that card at x4.
