Question about ASUS P5LD2-VM Motherboard
I just installed a "Killernic" network card for more stable online video gaming. Their manual states "Choose the fastest available slot in order to achieve the highest performance". Do the PCI slots on the p5ld2 have different speeds? Is one faster than another? Thanks!
Hi stevebise, no not at all. The 2 white PCI slots on the P5LD2-VM run at the standard PCI 2.2 speed. Which is 32 bit at 33.33MHz or 133MBs. How ever your board has another PCIE port which is double the speed of a standard PCI port. This is what a PCIE 1x nic card looks like;

If your current network card seems to function in the white PCI slot as a (KillerNic), than why buy a PCI 1x nic. As they say, "Ain't broke, don't fix it".
Hope this answers your question.
