Samsung 960 Pro M.2 NVME SSD

I have a Rampage V Extreme, and I would like to upgrade by adding the Samsung 960 Pro M.2 as a boot drive. I am looking for advice because I am currently running 2 ASUS R9 Fury X graphic cards in XFire, and also have a Sound Blaster Zx sound card installed.

I am aware that the M.2 will disable a PCIe lane once installed. The question I have is; can I install the M.2 and still have support for XFire and the Creative sound card? Any direction would be welcome! Thank you!

Yes you can, the M.2 card shares lanes with the bottom RED pcie slot, there is also a bios setting for M.2 so you can still use a pcie card in the bottom slot of up to X4

Thank you Menthol! I thought that might be the case, but I wanted to be sure. Truly appreciate your input!
