2x 5970 + this mobo

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Will it work well? I sent mine for RMA and not sure if they gonna give me a new one..

So should I get this? I know one of the cards will be running on x8... is that a huge problem? (cards are too fat so I gotta use last pci slot which is x8)

The board you posted will use both cards at 16x, so I don't see a problem with the GA-X58A-UD3R.

I thought the very last PCI slot was 8x?

Nope, read under the details:

Quote:
PCI Express 2.0 x16
2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x16 (PCIEX16_1/PCIEX16_2) (Note 1)
2 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8_1/PCIEX8_2) (Note 2)

(Note 1) For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16_1 slot; if you are installing two PCI Express graphics cards, it is recommended that you install them in the PCIEX16_1 and PCIEX16_2 slots.

(Note 2) The PCIEX8_1 and PCIEX8_2 slots share bandwidth with the PCIEX16_1 and PCIEX16_2 slots espectively. When PCIEX8_1 is populated with an expansion card, the PCIEX16_1 slot will operate at up to x8 mode; when PCIEX8_2 is populated with an expansion card, the PC IEX16_2 slot will operate at up to x8 mode.
PCI Express x1

My friend is 100% sure that 2 and 4 are 8x (he owns the mobo)

Can anyone prove otherwise? I am confused.
