    Is there any web sites that explain the best order to put items in your PCI slots? I'm perticularly intrested in which cards shouldn't be shareing IRQ's etc. What the effects are? That sort of stuff.

    Or perhaps you all have some advice?

    "If it's works it's ok."
    I heard "important" cards that need much traffic and priority should go higher up. Cards should be able to share IRQ:s without fuss if they are correctly menufacured (all manufacturers don't care sadly).

    Yeah put it ON TOP of the computer! :p

    No seriously, the performance increase (if any) will be minimal.
