new user, card installation question on G5 2.5 dp


New Member

I just purchased my first UAD-1 today with the studio pak. Of course, from preliminary research here and other places I know my G5 has the AMD PCI-x controller which is less desireable - oh well. But, I'm still a bit confused as to the proper PCI slot to insert my first card into. *Note - my video card is the Nvidia 6800GT which blocks the adjacent PCI slot. So, should I place the card in the slot farthest from the graphics card, or the closest slot to it?

Furthest if it is your only PCI card.
