Hey guys !

First post on this forum for me.

I've been planning on buying a new computer. My motherboard would be the Sabertooth Z77, which has

- 2x PCIe 3.0 ports
- 1x PCIe 2.0 port

The Graphic card that I'm planning to buy is SLI Ready, yet it goes in the PCIe 2.0 port. So, I've been asking myself this question :

If, later, I decide to buy another graphic card and plug it into the PCIe 3.0 port, will I be able to SLI with my other one that is in the 2.0 port ?

Gentlemen, thank you in advance.

Hi Carl Sagan/ Posted Image

You can download the Mobo manual from here, > http://www.asus.com/...H_Z77/#download Then go to chapter 2, page 12.

The two PCI-e 3.0 x 16 slots are used for the GPU cards.. They are backwards compatible so they will work with a card like this > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814125412 or > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814161406

Please give a link to the GPU you are thinking of installing.
