Question one- in tri-sli mode x16/x8/x8 is used.. does that mean I wont get as much performance from the two cards on x8 lanes?
Question two- if a large card(revodrive) is in the PCI-E x4 slot, I may not be able to place a graphics card in the second PCI-E x16 slot. Will the third slot run at x16 if only two graphics cards are installed?
Question three- If running a 580 in slot 1, 580 in slot 3, and a dedicated card for physix in slot 4..
A) this would work right?
B) what are recommendations for physix cards? is there such thing as overkill, do they need to be 400 or 500 series cards?
Question four- for these purposes, would I do better with a gigabyte or evga classified 1366 mobo?
1366 because 980x cpu
im not considering amd card because in gaming at native 2560 x 1440 resolution
