Monitor resolution: 4K Storage requirements: Will you be overclocking: not now Any motherboard requirements (no. of USB, Xfire/SLI, fan headers): PCIE 3.0 x16 or 4.0 x8 on x16 slot for GPU PCIE 3.0 x4 on x16 slot for Optane PCIE 3.0 x4 on m.2 slot for 970PRO 512GB PCIE 3.0 x4 on m.2 slot for Sabrent R4 1TB
Extra information about desired system:
Right now the 900P is in the first PCIE3 x16 slot and the GPU is in the second PCIE3 x16 slot, both operating at x8
I'm going to change GPU with a 3080 or 6800 XT and to add a Sabrent SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB.
New GPUs should stay in a PCIE3 x16 to get 100% performance but if i move the 900P in the 3rd x16 slot it will go down from 2.6GB/s to 1.7GB/s and i fear it would share bandwidth with the new Sabrent in the M.2_2 slot and make both go even slower
Is there any possible configuration both in physical positioning or software changes(bios updates and such) to prevent any component from underperforming?
What would happen if i'd upgrade CPU to 3700X or similiar? Will PCIE 4.0 fix the problem? Should i change MOBO ? Which one ?
