I would like to use both my PCI ports for some HSDL connection to two OCZ IBIS SSDs. This does not fit with the graphics card on the motherboard. Moving the graphics card from the x16 port to the lower x8 port will do the trick. What will be the drawbacks by doing this?
In clear text: Performance degration when moving single graphics card from x16 to x8 PCI-E 3.0, now, or with future more powerfull cards
Depends on your graphics card, processor and motherboard. Are you sure it's PCI-E 3.0? Because the only CPUs that support it is Sandy Bridge-E series.
