I have an Asus Crosshair Dark Hero VIII motherboard with a AMD 5900X cpu.
Im running a 3080 graphics cards at 16x , 2 NVME M.2 cards on the board , one running 4x and the other 3x
Also have 6b sata HDD connected.
Now i would like to add another nvme drive .
If i connect a NVME to PCIE card to the 3rd PCIE slot will it affect the gpu speed and drop it from 16x to 8x ?
Trying to fine a way of adding extra storage with faster speeds than sata.
Looking at the Sabrent NVMe M.2 SSD to PCIe X16/X8/X4 Card with aluminum heat sink (EC-PCIE) and a WD_BLACK 2TB SN770 M.2 2280 PCIe Gen4 NVMe
Any help most appreciated
p.s new to this sort of stuff lol
