  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

    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.
