View Full Version : What's your favourite layout for the expansion slots ?

In the past years, it was easy, with just 1 AGP slot & several PCI/ISA slots.

But today, i think it's a mess, cause, sometimes, you can't use all your slots when you go SLI.

Personally, i prefer this distribution (from the bottom to the top):

PCI, PCI, PCI, PCIE 16x, PCIE 4x, PCIE 1x, PCIE 16x (A8N-SLI Premium layout)

Because, i can use 2 big cards in SLI, i've 2 PCI slots for my DVB-S2 & DVB-T tuners, and i've 1 PCIE 4x for a future sound card.

Well, post your preferences.

My motherboard is the same as yours except without the last x16, and I've got to say, I love the layout.
