    Tweakers-page wrong info on haswell E processors?

      Hi,

       

      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.

       

      Thanks!
