I need advice on my motherboard and graphics card. For the motherboard the PCI x16 slot is on the bottom and will be right above the power supply so I'm afraid that if I put my card in it it will cause heating issues. I wanted to know if there is any differents between me putting the card into the x8 vs the x16 slot. And if someone could explain the main differences between the x16, x8, and x4 slots that would be very helpful. Thanks
You are right I was mistaken. When I was looking at the motherboard on newegg the photo showed where the slots are but the way it has them listed a thought it was x16, x8, and x4 starting from the bottom up, but I just looked and its actually x4, x8, and x16 from the bottom up. Thanks for helping me see that.
