i got that far i was wondering about the little slot above it the x16 or the x1 what are those for??

pci-e comes in 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x, and 16x.

A lot of stuff is being made for 2x or 4x slots while most video cards are 16x. They say tho that right now even the largest video cards aren't saturating the 16x bus.

Some motherboards may come with a 1x pci-e above the first 16x slot for a audio card.
