More aboutcard slot
U can run x16/x8/x8/x8.
U have .
4 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16; x16/x16; x16/x8/x16 and x16/x8/x8/x8, red) *1
*1-2 For PCIe 3.0 x16 (X8 mode), PCIEx8_2B(Grey) shares bandwidth with PCIEx8_2A(Red).
It will work fine.
And u will not even know about that,
because the performance loss would be just a few FPS.
