The specifications of this motherboards slots are:
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (blue)
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black) *1
2 x PCI
How much of a performance hit would it be if I plugged it into the PCI-E 16x (4x mode slot)
Right now, I have my 560TI in the blue x16 slot, but it covers up my other 2 PCI slots which I need for my sound card... Is it possible to slot the 560TI into the black PCIe 2.0 16x and prevent the 560TI from blocking the PCI slots?
