Hmm, the boards I listed state "2 x 16 PCI-e" on the site... misleading? What is the best thing then?

DFI INFINITY 975X Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 975X ATX - $174.99

I think Chozart has this board and states it is pretty good, although may have some minor issue, I can't remember exactly, sorry.

If you don't mind open box....this is probably the best board for your needs.....

Open Box: ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI-AP Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 975X ATX Intel Motherboard - $181.99


Most boards list both slots as x16, because they are, however, when 2 video cards are installed, they usually drop to x8 x8.......however, you will likely notice no difference at all. There have even been tests with a x8 x4 setup and seen less than a 10% decrease.

Even still, unless you are running a 25"+ monitor at 1600x1200, dual 1950s will be major overkill already, so x8 x8 won't be a show stopper......
