Summary: I have a board implementing the intel 5000X chipset. It has two PCIe x16 slots. However, the secondary slot is described as x16 mechnical( x4 electrical). The “true” x16 slot has a Quadro FX3500 being used as the primary display adapter.
Question: Can I install the 8800GTS in the x16 mechanical( x4 Electrical) slot?
