Default GTX 580 question for a pro :)

Hey everyone. I cant for the life of me find an answer to this question so im asking the Nvidia pros.

I have a Sabertooth x58 motherboard. It has 3 pcie slots.

2 of them claim they are x16.

My issue is that the regular PCI slot, which I need, gets covered up when using a video card on the top slot.

When my GTX 580 comes in, can I install it on the second lower PCIe16 slot and see no performance degrade? The only reason I ask is because the manual states that a single GPU should be in the first slot only but other have said that its ok to use the lower one as well.

Thanks for the help!
