Hey, I'm planning to get a 2011 system soon, not sure what board yet but I'm planning to have Nvidias Kepler GPU's in 2-way sli.....maybe 3 but Gotta make dah more munnays. So if I have a board in a layout like, pcie 3.0 , x1, x1, 3.0...and a space (for a two slot card) and another 3.0? could I run two cards at 16x? like the first two 3.0 slots, have a x1 slot used with a capture card and have a x1 sound card inside the last available 3.0 slot without affecting the x16 x16 setup? It may sound confusing so one more time dumbed down, Two pci-e x16 slots used, running sli x16 with one x1 slot being used by a capture card. Can I use a sound card in a pci-e x16 slot without screwing with the x16 x16 sli?

That's not what I'm asking, I'm asking if I'm using 2 way sli x16 and a x1 slot, can I use another x1 card inside a x16 slot without messing up the x16 x16 setup? or will it make it 8x 8x or 16 8x?
