I have a motherboard that has only one PCI E x16 slot. This slot has 8 lanes in. Will the max power draw for this slot still 75W or will it be the lower 25W that PCI E x8 slots are limited to. (Note that the slot uses PCI E x8 2.0 technology).

I am asking because I am looking to buy a GTX 750ti and was wondering whether the motherboard could power it.

I smam sam asking what it maxes at. That is the question. I know a 750ti works fine with 75W but am unsure whether the setup I have will supply that 75W

And I am telling you the slot will still supply 75w, its an x16 slot even if it runs at x8 it still supplies it.
