GPU in second PCI E on Sabertooth X58
Dec 19, 2010, 2:44 AM
The manual says this isn't recommended. Can this board run a single GPU the second slot at x16?
In the first slot it covers the regular PCI port, which I need.
Is there any real downside?

It will run at x16.
It's generally recommended to use one card in the first PCI-E slot but if you use it in the second slot,it will run at x16.
