Tweakers-page says the 5820 haswell E cannot handle two GPU due to limited pcie Lanes. Other sources say otherwise.
I'm wondering if I truly need a better cpu than the 5820 to run ddr4 ram, 3 ssd drives, 3 hdd drives, 2 970 gtx cards.
The next cpu is a couple hundred extra and has 40 pcie Lanes vs the 28 in the 5820. And the next up cpu is only. 2ghz increase aside from the pcie Lanes. So if I don't need the extra Lanes, why would I spend a lot more for a small gain? I know these are beginner things to ask.
I think I misunderstood the tweakers page. I guess the 5820 CAN handle 2 GPU, but will be unable to run them at full speed due to limited amount of pcie lanes.
