[SOLVED] Is there any performance difference between installing W10 UEFI over legacy?

From a gaming performance standpoint no, there shouldn't be any performance difference at all.

UEFI vs Legacy (for the most part) is all pre-boot environment concerns. Once you're loaded up & inside Windows, performance should be the same.

A 2nd question if I may. (if not tell me and I;ll open a 2nd thread)
If neither PCIe x16 slot works on a 450M motherboard, is that a bad CPU or board? Which is more likely?

Depends. On an older board, the board is more likely to fail than a CPU.

On a newer platform though, that's more likely to be a poor CPU installation, damaged pins etc, than it is the board.

That's all theoretical though, of course. Could be either/or.
