yeah the first 2 slots would be best I believe they are labeled slot 2 and 4

 

I wouldn't recommend using the bottom 16x slot as it runs at 4x

 

however you don't have to use the 1x pcie slots you can also use 1x devices in 4x or 16x slots

Without knowing what video card you have and what motherboard you have that's a pretty hard question to answer correctly. Are you talking about the ones in your profile?

But, generally, any slot will work, but some slots give better performance than others..
