At the MSI website it clearly states:

Chipset

• NVIDIA ® nForce 590 SLI SPP Chipset
- HyperTransport link to the AMD Athlon 64/Athlon 64FX/Athlon 64 X2 CPU
- NVIDIA LinkBoost Technology
- Supports 1 PCI Express x16 interface

• NVIDIA ® nForce 590 SLI MCP Chipset
- Supports 1 PCI Express x16 / 2 PCI Express x1 connection
- Independent SATAII controllers, for six drives
- Single Fast ATA-133 IDE controller

I don't think you will find a Dual X16 MB unless it has the C51 nvidia chipset on the board. You will also find that even dual X8 capable motherboards always have the 2 X8 slots next to each other.
