  1. i was looking at motherboards for my next rig earlier today and i noticed a asus board (M2N-SLI) that has 2 pci express 16x slots, however when in SLI mode they run at 8x, so my question was if i have dual 8600GT's will i run into band width problems?

    I plan on having a AMD 6000+ x2
    as of now a single 8600GT and later another one
    2 gb of ram
    320gb WD hard drive
    but the motherboard is the final part i need to get.

    Try it, and you tell us... Good luck. Remember drivers are important in proper SLI function. Try different ones if you can
