Will m.2 nvme ssd and PCIe x1 sound card affect gpu performance?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone. I have not yet built a PC of my own but am planning to in the near future. I have been trying to do a lot of research on what to build and I am mainly going for a very overkill gaming machine/workstation. I'm planning on having an Asus ROG MAXIMUS XII HERO ATX motherboard, with an Intel Core i9-10900K 3.7 GHz 10-Core Processor. I want to have 3x m.2 nvme SSDs(Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2tb). I read on some forum that nvme SSDs will affect my GPU performance because it uses the given PCIe lanes for the chipset. To my knowledge the z490 chipset only has 16x lanes. Which I want all directed to the GPU(maybe 3090, or 3080). And I also will be getting a PCIe x1 Sound Card(Creative Labs Sound Blaster AE-9). Will the sound card affect the gpu performance as well? I am kind of new to this stuff so please go easy on me. But thank you for your answers.
