Noob crossfire question about PCIe slots


New member
Sep 30, 2008

I am quite new with the crossfire concept but am thinking about having second 3870 card installed in crossfire.
I have a Asus P5K mobo which has the P35.
I did read somewhere that if I only have the 3870 cards installed then the first slot will run with 16x and the second will run 4x.
BUT if I have any other cards installed in PCI slots, the second PCIe will only run at 1x. I have a X-fi card installed to 1 of the PCI slots.
Now I tried to find a solution about this but could not find it.
So please, if you could help me and let me know wether this setup of 3870 cards with this mobo and X-fi card makes any sense and can I actually gain any benefit from this.
Thanks for all the advice you masters of hidden knowledge can share :thumb:
