    PCI-e v4 card on PCI-e v3 board. Performance loss?

    I decided to take the plunge on a Sapphire 7900XT (not the Pulse). https://www.overclockers.co.uk/sapphire-radeon-rx-7900-xt-gaming-20gb-gddr6-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-3a2-sp.html I only have a PCI-E v3 motherboard, not a v4. This will still be alright wont it? It's backwards compatible and...

    Asus motherboard question

    Reading the manual for the ASUS ROG STRIX X670E-E am I right in thinking that if I want to run 3 m2 drives without dropping down to x8 on the PCIe 5.0 I would need to run them in M2_1, M2_2 & M2_4? I'm a bit confused as the manual states if you use M2_3 the PCIe5_1 drops down to x8 and the _2...

    jiggling PCI WiFi Adaptor and Poor WiFi or bad adaptor?

    So I just moved into new university accommodation and the WiFi is acting up. However, previously I used an ethernet cable so I thought the problem might have been my PC. So I took out and reinstalled my PCI WiFi adaptor, but I noticed it could very slightly wobble when in the slot, not hugely...

    PCI Cards: Do you remember? Do you use any now?

    In the days of yore we had all sorts of PCI cards; from soundcards to serial ports we took pride in posting pictures of our full to the brim desktops, basking in the glory of all that extra flexibility and functionality.

    Is max resolution dependent on PCI express version?

    HI, Just wanted to know if the max resolution a graphics card can display is dependent on the type of PCI express slot the card is plugged into? So if a PCIe v3 card capable of displaying 2560x1440 is plugged into an old motherboard which only supports PCIe v1 can it still display 2560x1440...

    I've been given a PCI Express SSD to recover some data from, but my motherboard doesn't have a slot for it. Are USB adapters available which will allow one of these to be connected via a USB 3/3 socket?

    Soundcard in 16x slot?

    Hey peeps, I'm eyeing up a Gigabyte mATX board for my next build. I only have/want a single GPU, but I also have a Soundblaster Z, which is a 1x PCI-E device. These will be the only things in the PCI-E slots, so one will be unused. 1) can I plug the Soundblaster into the lower 16x slot? (this...

    Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe USB3 header broken!

    So I've gone ahead and done something very stupid. Whilst pushing in the USB3 cable into the motherboard's USB3 header, I managed to push and destroy two of the pins, one of which completely snapped off, as so... So now the USB slots on the front of my case no longer work :( My question is...
