With today's video cards they all take up 2 slots because they are double width cards. I can't see how you can put anything in slots 2,4,or 8 when your video cards completely cover them. If you are dual sli'ing then use slot 7 and 8 for added cards. The video cards will work fine as long as nothing is in-between them. If you run 3 cards you use slots 1.3 and 5 and use 7 and 8 for your other hardware. From what I saw on the bridges that came with my board, it indicates 1,3,5 for 3-way sli. Manuals are not always accurate because the board designers don't write them. They use someone with much less knowledge who is good at creating manuals.
