    4GB should suffice. Lanes will most likely not matter since most people build multi GPU rigs with 6-8 GPUs and use a cheap CPU, thus having only 1 lane anyway and you most likely don't want to buy server CPUs, right? Most people don't.

    @Cryptocore Every cpu can't support multi gpus as it can disable other cards. I bought a pentium g4400 and it has 16 pci-e lanes whitch means it can support up to 16 gpus using pci-e risers.oops i just answered my self :|
