Hello,I have no option other than to use 3 Nvidia FX570 cards to drive 5 monitors. Two of them are in 16X PCIe slots with 4 monitors connected to them and one is in an 8X PCIe slot with 1 monitor connected to it. Will this cause the 4 monitors that are connected to the two cards in 16X slots to perform slower due to having one with one monitor in an 8X slot? Or will the monitor connected to the card in the 8X slot just perform slower than the other 4 monitors? Thanks for the help.
I wouldn't worry about it. The x16 or x8 refers to the number of pci lanes available which equates into available bandwidth for the slot. That card is not near fast enough to utilize the bandwidth a x8 slot provides, so there will be no difference between the x16 slots and the x8 slot.
