GPU = ASUS GTX 680 http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/NVIDIA_Series/GTX680... The GPU is hugemongus. It takes up three slots. I have a CPU Cooler = http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=Mjc2OA==... But it won't fit if I put the GPU in PCI-e Slot 1 What are the consequences if I put the GPU in Slot2? I'd rather just get a new CPU Cooler than sacrifice performance..but not sure if that is the case. Thanks in advance for your input.
