I'm starting a new build with a 4090 on a MOBO with an on board PCIe 5 M.2 slot. I'd like to use a Gen5 NVME but I understand there's an impact to the speed of the GPU. The main use of the machine will be gaming. Will the impact to the GPU be worth the performance of the NVME? Thanks.
I don't believe running a RTX 4090 at Gen 4 x8, which is equivalent in bandwidth to Gen3 x16 would impact it's performance in any meaningful way.
