SLI Bandwidth question

  1. Is there any difference in putting..Lets say 2 7950s in a A8N-SLI Which saids it has X8 Speed, And Put 2 7950s in a A8N32-SLI Which said it has X16 Speed. Is there any difference? Will the SLI not work, or will it be significantly slower?

    Thats a AM2 board right? =O I'm kind of limited to 939 because i just need to replace my A8N32 but the problem is that i can't find any in American e-tailers =[ But i'm seeing alot of A8N-SLI's so....yeah =D

    I though AM2 boards aren't compatible with 939 because of those..Pin patterns on the CPU

    This sure is one weird world when it comes to compatibility

    am2 boards run ddr2 only, its 240 pin, so if u currently dont have that ram then yes u would have to upgrade. Luckily its cheap right now.
