I wonder if thats true now that the 8800 GTX is out, also, i wouldnt be surprised if the 7950GX2 was capable of utilizing more then the 8X. Wish I had a 8X board to run benchmarks.

^ Id be interested in seeing IF there was a difference... as I plan to keep my socket 939 boards until well into the next year, maybe even 2 -- even though Im stilling missing out on DDR2

Although I plan to use 7800 cards in the near future, so I bet those wouldnt need the dual x16, eh?

Maybe someone here with a G80 card can test it out and see if there is a difference

The 7800 series wouldn't need 8x or 16x.... but why are you moving up to 7800?

Nice find, that certainly does make the Asus board a little more appealing, knowing that you can run the 8800 GTX on it.

you can run the 8800gtx on the dfi just not in sli

Note: This card is 275mm in length so make sure it fits in your case! Also the cards require PCI-E x16 slots, they will not function in a x8 slot so for SLi you need dual x16 mainboard. Finally 500W minimum for PSU and 600W+ is recommended.

This makes it sounds like each card requires a x16 slot, it says they will not function in a x8 slot...
Looks like the cards really do require an x16 slot.

Check this out from Nvidia Website

High Speed Interfaces
  • Designed for PCI Express® x16
  • Designed for high-speed GDDR3 memory
Anyone in the Dallas area have an x8 slot mobo I can borrow for testing? I think this is definatly something we need to confirm for other members...

Thus Bitemarks and bloodstains' comment is correct

You can run a single card on the DFI (at x16 speeds), but not in SLI.

Now, I don't expect him running SLI 8800's on that opty rig, since that will be one heck of an CPU bottleneck

the dfi has x16 slots if you only use 1 card you get x16 but using 2 cards in sli it drops to x8 x8 where as the a8n32 will stay at x16 x16 so unless you plan on going sli with 2 8800GTX card i would go with the dfi more overclocking options

Ah, I forgot the slot functions at x16 when not in sli, I got pwned, your right!
