    Hmm, how interesting... didn't realise that - I suppose SLI has just become more viable for some people!

    Would there actually be a performance benefit from having 2 16x slots rather than 2 8x slots... I wasn't aware of the 8x slot being saturated (or whatever the right word is) yet.

    Now that does sound interesting!

    true they dont come near.

    To me it seems a bit of a pointless gesture, sure in the future a graphics card on an 8x slot will be bottlenecked but by then its likely your whole mobo will be horribly out of date and u'll likely have changed it.
