PCI-e SSD with P67

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hokay, so.

I'm not sure how many people know of this little guy:Super Talent RAIDDrive. Notice the 1.2 GB/sec write speed... INSANE. and for $2,800 for 512 GB, I'll nod my approval

Here's my desired set-up with an i7-2600k on a P67:
- a x16 GTX 470 (with sli to another one in the future)
- the x8 SuperTalent Drive
- a PCI HT Omega soundcard

Here's the issue: I can't find mobo's with enough bandwidth for the set-up. I've found that most P67's won't do a x16 AND a x8, but will split bandwidth of the available x16's into 2x8's, such as the ASUS P8P67 PRO, MSI P67A-GD65 and ASRock P67 Extreme4. And (correct me if i'm wrong) since a GTX 470 is a full x16, something is not going to work. Then considering the chance that I will SLI another 470 later in life, in which case the third PCI-e x16 becomes a x1, the SSD might be a white elephant that I can't use.

So basically is there a way that those mobo's i mentioned can be used in the configuration i described, or are there any mobo suggestions out there that can do what I want? I've built a few computers before, but that was many, many years ago so i'm a little rusty, especially since i've been out of the DIY market for a while.

Note: I need a regular PCI interface for my soundcard, so it can't be a PCI-free mobo.

You can run a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 Card in an x8 Slot. If you have both slots occupied, they will run at x8/x8, which for the GTX 470 shouldn't and won't cause any problems or performance issues. As for the SSD, well.. x1 on a PCI-Express slot represents 500 MB/s, so at x8 you get 4GB/s of possible transfer rates for the slot. I honestly highly doubt that SSD will max out an x8 slot.
