I have a 8800gt (PCIe 2.0 compatible) in a 16x PCIe slot. My MOBO has 2 PCIe slots. 1 @ 16 and 1 @ 1.
I was think of upgrading it to a newer AM2+ socket so I can go quad and take advantage of PCIe 2.0 and newer sli boards with better chipsets.
My questions are...
1) Is the PCIe 2.0 a noticeable difference?
2) The MOBO's that I am looking at say with one card you get 16x benefit from your card. But in SLI you only get 8x from each card. So on a MOBO set up like that is there any improvement? You are still only getting 16x right?
