Motherboard slot question Tags: Motherboards Graphics Cards PCI Express Product Last response: November 16, 2010 5:16 PM in Motherboards Share ambam November 16, 2010 3:40:26 AM I have an MSI Big Bang X-Power and Two HD 5870's I want to put in CrossfireX. This motherboard has Six PCI express slots. I would like to know exactly which slots are the PCIe 2.0 x16, and not x8 or x4. If you put a high-end graphics card in a x8 or x4 slot, the bottleneck can slow it down quite substantially. Out of these six slots, which are the x16 slots?
