So I'll be putting my first rig together whenever my MB gets to me (see signature for hardware details), and as it will be far enough away from my router to require a wireless networking solution, I bought one of these:http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=531. So here is my question. If I install this into one of the lower PCI slots on my Mobo, as my GPU will be in the first, will it drop the bandwidth(?) from x16 to x8-x8 since two PCI slots are being used? Will this issue only occur if I'm using two GPUs in SLI mode? I'm obviously new at building and my understanding of this part of the process is relatively low. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, if there is a more appropriate board to post this please let me know. Thanks.
