Thanks. I hope I got it all correct/right! I might be misunderstanding something about the "shared bandwidth" between the black and white/grey slot, but the rest should be correct for sure.

Thanks for the explanation. Reading it without the pic the first time was a bit confusing

To sum it up, whether I use the first or second PCIe x16 slot, adding anything to the free slot will reduce the speed.

Is the first or dark blue slot immune to this effect? Can I put a PCIe x1 card in the second PCIe x16 (grey) without degrading the speed of the primary PCIe x16 slot (dark blue)?
