YES, a standard x16 PCI-E card will fit and work. If you are not gaming, you will see no difference between x16 and x8 performance. With present top end cards you will need benchmarks to see a difference.
Thanks. I am now hearing something about Vista (but not XP) requiring that if two cards are used (speaking about to drive 3 monitors here, not for SLI) they both need to be running the same driver (for the use of the new Aero features). That obviously won't be a problem if the two cards are identical. So knowing that the standard x16 will fit and work is helpful.
