PCI Express slot gone bad?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I currently have EVGA gtx460 SLI and about 2 weeks ago one of my pci express slot stopped detecting my gpu. I took out the top gpu and only ran the bottom gpu, that worked fine. When I tried to run a gpu on the top slot it wouldn't detect. When i built this system I was running sli with 650 PSU, can that be the problem? Can i RMA the motherboard?

Check your BIOS to see if a PCI-e slot is disabled.

I was afraid this would happen. I heard some horrifying stories with gigabyte RMA.

Yeah I know. I'm going to run some more test and be 100% positive before going through that gigabyte process.
