Okay... There is only 1 pci-e on the evga board but why so is there 4 pci-e 2.0? do pci-e plug into one of those?

also whats a better latancy 7 or 8? OCZ gold are like 80 after mir right now. are they better or the same as the platinum?

EDIT: I just read I can plug a PCIe into a PCI E 2.0 even though they are not the same size. Is this true or false?

you can plug a pci-e x1 or x4 into a x16 (the long) slots.

The lower the cas number the better. Hence cas7 is better.
