Hello, does anybody know if i try to plug my single Graphic Card to the 2nd PCIe 3.0x16_2 slot, if it will cause any problem or speed issues for graphics?
Im trying to set free the 2 PCIe 2.0x1 slots from above for two other cards.

thanks

So what you want to do is move your Vid card from the top PCIE slot to the second PCIE slot, so you can add in cards to the PCIE 1x slots.

There will be no problem in doing this.

Agreed with Bigball -- there should be no issue moving the card to a lower slot.

Generally in all mid/high end motherboards the first two pci-e x16 slots works in their max rated speed (i.e. x16) and their bandwidth isn't shared with any other components. SO, you can safely change the slot of the graphics card.
