Does my PC have enough PCI lanes?

Does my PC have enough PCI lanes to run all this hardware? My question is, can my PC run all this hardware without any PCI lanes being disabled or using them all up? I don't understand PCI lanes that much. Thanks. PCPartPicker part list](https://pcpartpicker.com/list/kqQHD2) / Price breakdown by merchant

Short answer, yes. You ain't got anything crazy going on.

I only asked because my sound card stopped working out of no where. It was making static noises while I had my head phones plugged in for two months. It's safe to say it has failed. I'm going to RMA it. I got it to register for 4 seconds, then it died again.

Honestly I haven't used a sound card in years. Since yours "sounds" defective, I return it for a refund.

There is a limit to PCIe lanes

And for maximum performance you will lose some if you drop from x16 to x8 on a GPU

Now, is there any real world difference? Not really
