Hey all, it's been a while (7-8 years). Apologies if this isn't the correct section. I've just put together a new PC. Asus Rog Hero, 5500XT with an M.2 SSD in slot one. I noticed in GPUZ that my GFX card appears running in 8x lanes even though it's in the first PCIe 16x slot on my motherboard. I checked the motherboard manual and it looks like using the M.2_1 slot for an SSD will downgrade the first PCIe slot for my GPU from 16x to 8x as they are sharing the CPU. I saw a couple of vids from like 2 years ago showing that 16x vs 8x PCIe 3.0 only had a 1% performance difference on FPS, is this correct for the modern GPUs such as my 5500XT or did I make a mistake installing an Nvme hard drive instead of going with a more conventional solid state drive like a WD Raptor or SATA SSD to ensure my GPU is running 16x? It's been a while, still catching up with recent tech. Appreciate any replies. Thanks.
