For example, I'm looking at this motherboard, M.2 NVMe and video card:
Samsung 950 Pro M.2 PCI-Express 3.0 x4
MSI Gaming X99A Gaming 7
GeForce GTX 960 4GB
My confusion stems from the overlap between the two types of PCIe slots.
If I install the M.2 PCIe SSD, does that essentially "use up" any of the PCIe slots? Similar to how using a regular M.2 SATA drives disables some of the regular SATA ports? Or is there no overlap between the two?
I'd like the ability to upgrade to SLI down the road and don't want to bottleneck myself out of the gate.
Also, will that motherboard allow maximum performance out of the SSD? The SSD is labeled as NVMe, but I can't seem to find that exact wording on the motherboard page. Just the overlap of the M.2 PCIe designation.
