Default You can connect the ocz revodrive in pci.e 16x??

Hello friends! comes time to buy ssd and I found the OCZ SSD RevoDrive PCI-Express, my question is if I connect to a pci.e where you put a video card in my case I have a 3 way SLI GTX260 and he is free only the last pci-e slot on the motherboard 3 rampage extreme, I mean the 4th pci.e red.
From the pictures it seems that only pci.e walk in the little ones ... and that makes me hesitate when deciding to purchase

Unless times have changed, you can run any "lower" PCIe card in a higher rated slot.

PCI Express - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
a PCIe card will physically fit (and work correctly) in any slot that is at least as large as it is (e.g., an 1 sized card will work in any sized slot);

You can put the Revo Drive in any PCI-E x4, x8 or x16 slot on your mobo. It will NOT work in a PCI-E x1 slot.

The PCI-E slots are the same electrically. For example, I run a PCI-E x1 sound card in a x16 slot with no problems.

Edit: Ninja'd!
