  1. Yes... Different speeds for each slot

    You want to use the PCIe 2.0 X16 closet to CPU that runs at x16

    Yes... You will get full performance usage out of a single card setup.
  2. NAH NAH .. i want to crossfire 5770 using this board.

    sorry i forgot to mention it.

    so, can i gain full performance on these slots using 5770 crossfire

    and please anyone explain these term like x4 x6 x8 to me :( :(
  3. as it is written on the first slot x6 at single
    and on second one it is written x4 ??

    mean i can only gain 25% performance of the single gpu?? according to x16 , x4 rules? :(:(
  4. Best answer
    In a crossfire setup, you will run at x16,x4 which will show about a 5% decrease in performance from x16,x16. Typically, I don't recommend running a x16,x4 but with 5770's you will not see enough of a decrease to worry about. :)
