I have an Asrock p67 Extreme4 Gen3 motherboard with the PLX chip PEX8608 and I am considering buying an additional PCIE x4 raid card + 2 ssd's in raid 0. Will this have any impact on the performance of my video card? The PCIE x16 slot has a geforce gtx 560 Ti.
Since this board has PCIE 3.0 slots, what do you think will happen with future video cards? The PLX chip claims it will allow all devices to work at max bandwidth, but I'm concerned if I get a new/future video card, there may be issues.
Well in the future - when a GPU can take advantage of ALL OF PCIE 3.0's bandwidth - i'm pretty sure your whole computer will be outdated to even take advantage of it. It would be like having a Pentium 3 1Ghz trying to feed a AMD 6990 GPU (even though this isn't obviously possibly, just an example).
