a PCIe card will work in any PCIe slot asumeing that it will physically fit.

ie, you can put a X16 card in a 1x slot, or vice versa

Isn't it possible to put the 580's further away from each other, to avoid unnecessary heat?
Or isn't there sli-bridges long enough?

I tired explaining that to him, but for whatever reason, he wants to use the NF200 chip, so they have to be like that

Please don't get reflex wound up on this x8 is faster than NF200 x16 again, or I might have to bang my head against a wall until something cracks

@reflex: That x8 vs x16 might just make its way into the Maximus review video. And bear in mind that I don't just do Vantage and Far Cry 2, but also actual gameplay with Fraps handling the FPS recording. So we'll see.
@TehStranger?: Yep this is a good place...thanks for keeping up with me even though I was out of the game for about 2 months after my system nearly fried.

Yeah I think it'll be best to make the unboxing/review into one video...otherwise it'll make for almost a results-only review and that's not good enough in my opinion
