Will I have any bandwidth issues if I get a *new*(hasn't yet been released) Titan X? My understanding is the gp102 architecture is not to far from hitting the cap of pcie3. I'm running an ASUS RAMPAGE V EDITION 10 with 2 pciex16/8 and 2 pciex8 along with an Intel Core i7-5820K. I know the GTX1080 I recently purchased is safe, but what about the Titan X with its 30% performance increase?

Also which slot should I use for the Titan x? A pciex16/8 or pciex8?

Thanks
Here are the Titan X specs:

Put it in the  x16/x16 slot in 40 lane configuration - physically I'm not sure it'll fit in slot 1 as the casing on the Titan is a bit of a weird shape - it's part art / part hardware component so you might need to use the slot below.  Your ROG board should be able to keep up!

absolutely, it's off-loading all the tricky stuff to the GP102 which with current games will still have a bit of overhead even at 4k
