Seeing that the Z77 D3H mobo will share PCI-e 16x bandwith between the Sapphire 7850 2GB 256bit OC graphics card and 1TB OCZ PCI-E SSD drive to 8x/8x does this mean that the perfromance of my graphics card will be reduced by half as its a 16 bit card.
1. Is it worthwhile to share the slot bandwith or would the graphics card effectively perform at 128bit 1GB?
2. Will the graphics card be able to max out its designed performance when under strain in gaming or be restriced due to lane sharing?
3. Will overclocking affect/damage the 1tb OCZ PCI-e SSD card as its plugged in directly to the mobo opposed to getting power from the PSU.
4. Can the system boot up from the PCI SSD Drive
Below is my intended build in a few weeks time. Please advise
