post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i was in the process of removing my gtx 680 ftw + from my mother board i guess i was too rough and bent pins as it came off.. I tried to straighten them but to no avail. My question is will i lose performance if i put it in the pci 8 ?

Depens if its PCI-E 2.0 or 3.0

If its 3.0 then its the same speed as 2.0 x16

In that case the answer would be no it would not be much slower if any at all

Its a Z77 board you have pretty sure its PCI-E 3.0
