Mac Pro 2010 PCIe slots: which is which?
Can someone advise, please? I know there are four PCIe slots in the back of my Mac Pro. For some reason (I find it counterintuitive), they're numbered from the bottom up. So the lowest PCIe slot (that I have my graphics card in) is PCIe slot 1.
I just put an Accelsior PCIe SSD card in the slot above that one... and I just want to make sure it's in the right place for the fastest read/writes.
I ask because somewhere I read that some slots are faster than others.
Thanks for any advice,

Yes, I could move it to the slot above. But now I'm curious—what might take advantage of this 16x slot?
I'm not a gamer.
I'm a video editor, though.
My three displays are connected to the card in the bottom (also 16x) slot.
So what are, or what might be, the possibilities?
