No, it doesn't matter. Maybe what you mean is the nVidia nF200 chip. Motherboard with 2 nF200 chips will have 4 x full PCIex16 or 7 x PCIex8. This is common with the X58 chipset LGA1366 board. For SB LGA1155 so far that I know of only has 1 nF200 such as in Gigabyte P67A-UD7-B3 has x16/x16/x8.

If you are running multi GPU set-up up to 3 cards, you definitely need a board with at least 1 nVidia nF200 chip with Sandy Bridge CPU.
