Re: 2 pci-e slots
Found out that the second pci-e slot operates at 2x.
another question, im thinking of getting an 9600 GT, but only if the card is small like most of the midrange cards due to my chipset heatsink being in the way (read other forum i posted up), and if not then the 8600 GT, and i know its not as good of a performance.
but heres the question, if i get one of those cards and put it at the first which operates at x16 and x8, and put my graphics card in the second slot, can i use my x1950 (second slot operating at x2) as my video games renderer (hoping theres no performance drops) and have my other card in the first slot to do random things.
or is it better to just use one of the cards im thinking of buying as a standalone card and connect it to 2 monitors?
