PCI-E help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What does PCI Express 2.0 x16: 2 (single at x16 mode) 2 (single at x8 mode) mean? I want to run sli 590s and I don't want to lose performance by getting a bad motherboard that doesn't support it.

The mobo I was looking at was [3-Way SLI] Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 -- 2x Gb LAN, 4x PCI-E 2.0 x16, 6x USB 3.0. Is this good enough for sli 590s?

UD7 is a good board. Some will tell you to get an Asus equivalent, but its really preference.

Two 590s is 4X SLI, you'd like the X79 chipset coming out in a bit.

So I can't sli 590s with the UD7 board? I'm using the z68 series because I'm using a 2600k cpu.
