Thread: Does it matter/would it help?

    When filling up pci slots does it matter which slot you put certain cards in? Is there an unwritten rule or something as to what card goes where, and would there be less conflicts with certain slots?
    Hope this helps

    try to avoid using slot 1 ( the slot just under the AGP) as it shares an IRQ with the AGP slot but other than that i dont think it matters

    In fact not on all boards does PCI slot 1 share with IRQ's with the AGP slot (sometimes slot 5 or 6 has that share) and some dedicated sound cards (eg; Sound Blasters) do not like sharin' IRQ's either but it's best to check out the sharin' arangements in the mobo manual to avoid conflicts.
