Might need to replace my mobo and found a new cheap board but I'd have to use 2nd slot for graphics card. Would I lose any performance?

iF ITS 8X? NO

Edit: You might have to assign the second slot in the bios to get it to work.

I know it will work because I did it with one of my old rigs. I was just wondering if there was more latency since it's further away and if it's enough to degrade performance?
