    Hi,
    I have just built myself a i7 rig with a Asus P6TD Deluxe....Chucked in a Sapphire HD5770 and it has kinda blocked all my PCI slots now....

    What kinda performance differences will I get putting the graphics card in the 2nd PCI-16 slot?


    Anyone experienced this?
    Cheers

    the 2 blue PCI-E are both 16x so there is no performance difference with the two, but the white third one is alot slower.

    Thanks Otis,
    My board has a blue a white and a black PCI-E slot however.
    I think as you said, that putting it in the other PCI-E 16x, hopefully, should not cause any differences to performance.....
