    DX79SR - can I use PCI Slot 6 (closest to CPU) for a RAID controller? Or is it reserved for video only?

      PCI_Hi all.

      The title mostly says it. Can I use PCI Slot  #6 (closest to CPU) for a RAID controller? Or is it reserved for video use only? My PCI-3 video card takes up 2 slots which covers the adjoining slot and I would like to use the PCI-2 slot #5 (second from CPU) for a sound card. I do not need the PCI connector at slot #3. If I place my LSI RAID PCI-3 controller in slot #6 and my video card in #4, I have access to the 5 slots I need. Top to bottom: Raid controller, sound, video, video capture, and USB-3 expander.

       

      Thanks.   Cal
