Does the Pci-express number matter?

PCI-Express x4

That is the smaller slot on your board. The video card won't fit there, but it will fit in the other slot you have (which is x16, full length)

Hi,

 

I'm looking to build my first pc but I don't know if my graphics card fits my motherboard, because on the motherboard describtion on amazon. It sais that it has a PCI-Express x4 but my graphics card has a PCI-Express x16...

And if it does matter, do you guys know any cheap motherboards that do support the graphics card?

 

Here you have them:

Msi Geforce Gtx 1660 Ventus Xs 6G Oc Nvidia Gtx1660 Grafische Kaart, Pci Express X16 3.0, 6Gb Gddr6, 192-Bit,

 

Gigabyte B450 Aorus m AM4/B450/DDR4/S-ATA 600/Micro ATX sokkel - zwart,

 

Btw if I have made any spelling mistakes, English isn't my first language so srry about that...

 

Tnx, a fellow linus viewer

That board does have a x16 slot. 

It's the first slot. Which is a long 168pin one. 


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

You are fine, that card will work with that motherboard. I think you were reading the m.2 pcie specification which is something else. It says in the description that the board has a pcie 3.0 x16 slot so it will work with the GPU.
