I was taking a look at my case and was thinking, why can't I put my gigantic video card an extra slot away from the CPU. So I come here to find out. I am using a Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 and a Sapphire 5970, Would it be possible to use the second PCIe slow that runs at 16x for this card?

Gigabyte recommends using the top slot for best performance on that board, you could however insert it into the second slot and see if it works, and if it does what the performance is compared to being in the original slot.
