OK. It's that time again for a new build. Sold all fo my old components and am well on my way to assembling the goods for a new machine.
So I've decided I'd like to go with the Core i5 3550k and Z77 chipset.
My question is this: I understand that the Z77 chipset only has 16 pcie 3.0 lanes in total. Right? So assuming my motherboard of choice has 2 pcie slots, if I use the first pcie slot for my video card, and the second slot (typically 8 lanes of pcie, correct?) for this below tuner, would I have enough pcie bandwidth to record 1080i/p video from the second slot? Would the performance or quality of the capture suffer from the limited bandwidth?
