My graphics card is the Sapphire HD 6950 2GB, which is a PCIE 2.1 card. I know it is backwards compatible, so I can put it in a 3.0 slot, but would I use the top 3.0 x16 slot there, right below the CPU? I just wasn't sure if I should use the bottom 2.0 x16 slot. Thanks for the help. I'm really looking forward to having this thing up and running.
After reading online a bit, it seems like I would put the 6950 in the top PCIE 3.0x16 slot, even though it's a 2.1 card.
Can anyone quickly confirm for me? Thanks.
Yes Also, if you haven't done a build before, just take your time and keep static in mind (build on a pref wooden surface, slap your case every now and then etc) and in case you're nervous about it you can find many videos on youtube etc to give you an idea what to expect.
