Do I need a motherboard with dual x16, or dual x8 PCIe slots for SLI GeForce GTX 560's?

Question by Severus from Romania | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Motherboards | Jul 18, 2012 01:45 am CDT

Hello Tweakers,

I am building a new desktop pc wich will have a 2 way SLI setup on it, and was wandering about if it is worth getting a mobo that can run these two cards at x16 both or just x8 both. I am casual gamer and wanted to know if it will make much difference in gaming if the cards run at x16 or x8. The cards are at moment Msi's gtx 560 ti 2gb.

Thank you for your time, cheers!
