I have recently build a new PC, and I thought the specs were quite good! Although it feels a bit slower than what I expected, now I was reading up about it and now I'm worried that I am perhaps using too many PCLE lanes?

My specs are as follows:
6950XT ASROCK OC - GPU
AMD 7 7700X - CPU
MSI B650 TOMAHAWK WIFI - MOBO

STORAGE:
Kingston-SKC3000S - 1TB 2x
Samsung 980 PRO 2 TB PCIe 4.0 1x.

Any ideas?

My read of the manual says you should be OK with 3 NVMe drives and a SINGLE graphics card.

To help us get a baseline on your performance run userbenchmark.com and post the link to the results.

Odd, it feels hiccupy - especially around microsoft edge and whatnot.
I do have another sata drive as a backup, is that possibly what could push it over the edge?

Where'd I find that? I'm terrible with this, only just recently started to get into the technical bits with my new build.

For most people, it would be a setting in the admin portion of your router.
You can test to see if this is the problem, by manually setting the DNS provider for your PC
