Re: Best possible system for sub 2400$?
No it's not too much bigger. I don't see why size is all of a sudden an issue when you originally didn't care about the size of a full tower HAF. Just sayin.
1st, why would you want to spend 500+ on a GPU to disable it? If it's compatibility you're worried about you probably wont run into any issue with it. The card just wont be used.
2nd, if the card has SLI disabled it's still receiving power. It isn't disabled 100%, just when a game is being played it isn't receiving data.
3rd, no it wont run 16x. The card is physically using bandwidth still and the chipset detects it there dropping both slots to 8x. Neither card will have a problem running in 8x.
