*sigh* what a weird issue to have recurring on two motherboards....
I am in disbelief that this is even possible.
I put the card in the 3rd PCI-e slot and it is recognized.
Is the 2nd PCI-e slot busted? The first PCI-e slot on my other mobo that I replaced recently did not recognize any graphics cards on it either.... which is one of the reason I replaced it with the used evga x58 from this website after Asus' horrible customer support refused to repair my motherboard after RMA'ing it twice. Sorry if it sounds like im complaining, i've heard of people ordering 3+ new mobos from newegg and them all being DoA, but this chews.
This is the motherboard I am using now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188039
- EVGA 3-way SLI
Can I still run the 3rd PCI-e slot in x16 mode? I don't think you can.....
I read somewhere I believe that x16 and x8 aren't that big of a difference, but it says in the manual that came with the gtx 680 to hook it up to a pci-e x16. Can it be run in x8, if so, will there be a performance drop?Edited by Peteman990 - 4/20/12 at 9:29pm
