Should PCIe slot matter for wifi card?

I have an Asus - STRIX B350-F motherboard, and currently have my GPU in the 1st slot and RNX-AC1300PCE wifi card in the 3rd slot. I am pretty sure this is the best way to have it for air flow, but am unsure if there would be a better position for the wifi card performance wise?

Doesn't really matter on modern motherboards, any free slot will do.

Your card can't even achieve Gbit speeds...

I may be wrong.

it does not matter that much, your current set up is fine

Preferably one of the 2.0 slots, because the other 3.0 slot is likely tied to the CPU, and it'll rob your GPU of half its lanes (not that it would really matter)

gpu mostly won't use up all 16 pcie lanes there assigned.

your unlikey to notice a diff with x8 tbh

I may be wrong.

If, for any reason, my house had access to less lanes than it needs/could use, how would I tell (general question)

your house?

if you mean ur gpu.

you max speed on ur wifi card is 86mb/s

pcie 3.0 x1 has a speed of 985MB/s or 7.8gbs

slow b = bits big B = bytes

1 byte = 8bits

I may be wrong.
