More about which slot
  1. That goes in a PCIE 2.0 x16 slot but it will only use 4 of the lanes of the 16 lane PCIE slot. Some motherboards have x4 slots too.

    Those that mean i can not crossfire?
  3. You can crossfire you just need to get a motherboard that has those slots available.

    Any recommendation?
  5. Do you have a reason that you want an expansion card and not a motherboard that already has this built in?
  6. The 890GPA already has some but i want some more ports later.

    Well I like this ASUS board it has all the features the Gigabyte board has and more a little bit more expensive but I like ASUS better anyway.
