no gigabyte board as i mentioned above has 16x16x slots, only 16x8x

That doesn't make sense. You either have dual 16x or not. Period. How many chipsets are on the motherboard or can you provide a link to your EXACT model?

The reason for 16x is not due to bottlenecking (for the most part). The 8-series has had issues running on 8x PCIe slots unrelated to performance issues. This is why 16x is recommended and ensure compatibility.

Ok, you have 2 16X slots when used as a single card solution. Basically this means that if you have one card installed, the slot will be running as a 16X slot. However, when you add in another card the bandwith of each slot is split in half, thus creating 2 8X slots. In order to run the 8800 series with no compatibility issues or performance drops, you need a card that has 2 16X slots WHILE sli is enabled. Your current motherboard does not have that. I cant think of a more simple way to say it.

DirectX 10 is Q1'07... do not keep Socket 939, you'll perform the same with SLi'd 8800GTX's as with SLi'd 7900GS's. This is because you will be bottlenecking, also, you'll have less Physical Ram then GPU Ram. I'd save up until I had about $1500 then go out and buy new components.
-eVGA 8800GTX DirectX10 GPU ($600)
-Asus 680i Gaming Motherboard ($300)
-Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Conroe ($300)
-2GB of Good DDR2 667/800 Ram ($300)

sorry to correct you tub but thats wrong. head over to nvidia's sli zone. there are no disclaimers that you require a true 16x16x board for 8800 sli. you can run "any" sli cards on any sli ready board. There is nowhere in the 8800gtx or gts specs that state what you mentioned.

It's a hardware incompatibility problem that occurs on some motherboards. To ensure compatibility, it is recommended you use 16x PCIe for each card.

DuckieHo has hit the nail on the head. The only way to ensure 100% compatibility with the 8800 GTX/GTS is to run them in 16X slots. As such, the only way to run two 8800 GTX/GTS in sli, and ENSURE that you will not have any of the aformentioned issues, would be to run them on a 2 16X slot board. While the 8 Series cards may indeed run on a motherboard that utilizes 2 8X slots for sli, I would never suggest it. The 8 series has enough frustrating problems as it is, being a new product and all, as such there is no need to add in other problems that can be easily avoided by sidestepping known issues.
