What is this empty slot ?

Above are all solid answers.

 

Personally i use it for my primary graphics card, as on my motherboard the nvme slot would be covered causing heat issues to my drive. Thus i opted to put my 1080 on the lower slot. Yes i'm aware it will only function as a x8 instead of x16, but mehh

That's a PCIe full length slot


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

Yes but SLI causes more problems than it solves, so its a terrible idea either way.

Also a huge waste of money as you pay double the money for no good reason.

Not unless the motherboard supports it which it probably doesn't.
