pair of gtx480's at x8/x8 limit performance?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
If I run a pair of these gpu's at x8/x8 rather then x16/x16 will it have a negative effect on their performance? Is it worth doing?

I haven't seen any benchmark tests done, but from what I've read it's not even noticeable...

No negative effect, yes it's worth doing.
Even 4x PCI-E is not a limiting factor unless you run extremely high resolution.

get a pair of 580s cos 2 480s will sound like a ramjet.
