Okay this is probably going to sound like a really newbie question but hey.
Okay so how do you what slots the pci-e on a motherboard will line up with?
Do they always start on the first expansion slot?
For example, if my case has 8 expansion slots, will the pci-e on this board http://www.guru3d.com/news/evga-shows-z77-ftw/ line up with 1,3,4,5,7 with the x1 in slot 6?
Another question. Why do some mobos have more than 4 slots when you can only do 4-way sli most? And i'm talking about normal boards not things like the EVGA SR-2.
