Looking for a New Mobo

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got a little money to burn, and Im looking for a x2 PCI-Ex16 board
does this board support x16 in SLI

currently the one I have is running at 8x in SLI

Id rather stick with EVGA since I have had good experinces with them.. or would you recommand a differ Mfg for what Im after...

Also I need to stay with a 1156 Socket for now...

8x SLI isn't much of a difference from 16x SLI. It won't be worth it.

Stick with the board that you have. If your only grip with your current hardware is that it only has x8 SLI than stick with it. The difference between x8 and x16 is 2-3%. With that little of a difference your are talking about only 1-5 FPS lost due to the slower PCI-E lanes.

Stick with your current mobo as you will not notice any difference betwen 16x and 8x as it`s 2.0 PCIE standard.

In reality 8x PCIE 2.0 gives the same bandwidth as 16x PCIE 1.0 standard slot (on P35 and older chipsets)..

You have plenty PCIE bandwidth..

CHEERS..

You won't notice a difference.
