View Full Version : PCI-e 1x card into PCI-e 16x slot?

With my new 780i mobo running GTX 280 SLI on the 1st and 3rd PCI-e 2.0 16x slots, there are two slots available - the middle PCI-e 16x slot and a PCI slot underneath that. My plan is to put my X-Fi XtremeMusic in that PCI slot for the time being. But say Creative releases a brand new sound card in the coming months and it is PCI-e only... is it possible to put a PCI-e 1x card into the middle PCI-e 16x slot and still work?

PCI-E 1x card will work with all PCI-E 1x, 4x, 8x and 16x slots. :)
