My question is on my motherboard msi 870a-g54 which newegg says

Expansion Slots:

PCI Express 2.0 x16: 2 (x16/x4)

will i be able to run sli gtx 460's in those slots? dont worry about the board not being sli compatible i have used the sli patch to allow it just will i have room to use 2 card with this?

just got this off msi website

PCI-Ex16: 2
PCI-E Gen: Gen2 (1x16, 1x4)
PCI-Ex4: N/A
PCI-Ex1: 1



Slots

• 1 PCI Express x16 slot (PCI_E2) with x16 operation (PCI Express Bus SPEC V2.0 compliant)
• 1 PCI Express x16 slot (PCI_E3) with x4 operation (PCI Express Bus SPEC V2.0 compliant)
• 1 PCI Express x1 slot
• 3 PCI slots, support 3.3V/ 5V PCI bus Interface.


sorry im not really strong in the area of motherboards it says 2 pci-e x16 but then it says a x16 operating at x4 what does that mean..? would that just be a pci-e x4?
