Can I run 5 cards on there with just 1 PCIe extender?
Also I'd be using 2 PSU and I don't really know how to set it up. Can some one point me in the right direction?
I initially wanted to get 2 rigs with cheap set ups and now am turning to this Mobo for 1 rig with more cards as the savings there justified itself with an extra GPU.
Options for greatest investment:
Windows (currently 4 GPU MAX):
Buy a motherboard with 4 pci-e slots... x1,x4,x16, doesn't matter... you can even get PCI to PCIe adapters, unless you are running a 5970 or 6990 (dual gpu), in which case you only need 2 slots.
Linux (currently 8 GPU max):
repeat windows but double).
