So I got a Asus F2 A85-M Pro Motherboard and was going to put a Evga NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti in it.
The motherboard has 2 pci express slots. Problem is the first slot, if I do put my graphics card there will cover up the 2 usb 3.0 slots I have. If I put it in the 2nd pci express slot (graphics card) will it make a difference? I can't seem to find the answer in the manual or online or not a direct one at least. Help please?
It will work, the speed of the slot may be lower but it probably will not make a difference, most GPU's don't "fully saturate" the PCI slots anyways. I almost wonder if the second slot is meant to be for the GPU if putting it in the first slot would cover up any ports, but traditionally it's meant for the first slot.
^^ Oops I did not actually look at his MOBO, strange that the slot would cover other ports on the board, is it just meant for smaller GPU's then?
