Hi,

Im new building PC so apologies if any of this question is stupid. I built PC with ASUS Intel Z390 ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO, I9-9000k 2080ti and 512GB nvme with 2TB hard drive. However, i have realized i should have used bigger Nvme so i have purchased a second one without thinking about it. Then i realized that they use PCIe lanes so i might not have enough to have 2 of them installed in that correct as at 2 x 4pci for two nvme, 1 x 16 pci lanes for grahpics card is 24 however i need 8 for my CPU. is this correct and does this mean i will have to just stick with one NVME drive?
