So, i thought i could ask where i should put my different components on my MB for best results. For example, where should i put the GPU to prevent EMI to the soundcard, what slot should i use etc.


Now i know the basics, and that is, my GPU should use 16x, so i only have one choice on my Motherboard.

But, i got 3 other cards as well.

1 Ethernet card.
2 SoundCard ZxR (though one isn´t connected, and is simply a daughter board, so it can be anywhere as long as the cable is long enough).
1 PCI TV Tuner.


So i am not sure where to put them. I also don´t understand if i should use the Blue slot or Gray slot for the PCI-E 1x, and can´t find any information on it (except that the gray is 2.5gt and blue is 5gt).

That is the MB.
