Btw, as I seen it mentioned that 8x PCI-E speeds dont effect cards, this is untrue, there is about a 5-10% performance hit between 8x and 16x, and the gap gets larger when you move to cards like the GTX 285. This gap is less noticable when in an SLI config because your already seeing deminishing returns of around 20% from the 2nd card anyways. but the performance loss is there. dual or tri x16s all the way, Im already planning on atleast another GTX 260... even after having 2 then selling one, I miss the big numbers =P
