Your fps in games will go off a cliff in a 4x slot.

a Soundard will only ever use 1x of ''bandwidth'' (Trying to simplify this for you...)
a GPU can use 16x, so only giving it 4x to use will limit it.
Giving a soundcard 16x of bandwidth will not make any difference, since the soundcard will still only use 1x of it.

Maybe that helped a little..? :/

Lately my screen often goes black for a couple of seconds...
Do u think this is because I have the soundcard(x1) in the x16/x4 port?
