I am a layman when it comes to hardware but :

Someone said following & thus it has only 2 PCIe x16 slots.

The problem is actually a bit more technical. The third PCI-E slot on these boards does not even go through the same controller.

The first two slots are controlled by the CPU directly. The third slot is controlled by the chipset, P67 or Z68 depending on the board.


I don't know what it means & should I look for another board ? If yes, any suggestions.

Thanks
