So I am searching for a sli motherboard, and I found one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I am buying this because it says it has Two 2.0 PCIe 16x slots. But, it said you can run one at 16x or two at 8x, will this affect performance for sli? Should I get 16x and another 16x?

Here is what I am talking about, if you can't find it. I took a screenie of the PCIe port specifications.

Most of the Mobos that supports SLI/CrossFireX runs at 8x 8x configuration when equipped with 2 cards....and no you won't even notice any performance difference, you should be fine :)
