Hello friends. I'm new here and would like to ask the community a question. I currently own an Asus Sabertooth Z77. I watched this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XL0uxDvrMI (9:00 minutes in ) and the gentlemen said that there is not much of a difference between 8x SLI 2-way vs 16x 2-way. (I hope I listened correctly.) Anyway, I was wondering if that is accurate and if I should upgrade my motherboard to the EVGA Z77 FTW because 2-way SLI will run in 16x as opposed to 2-way SLI 8x that my Sabertooth puts out. Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance.

(On a side note I'm asking now as I plan on getting another 680 Classified come tax time. I like to plan ahead)

3770k @ 4.1ghz (I used the X.M.P. setting in the BIOS and it lowered my overclock from 4.2 to 4.1)
Corsair H80 LCU
EVGA GTX 680 Classified 4GB
Corsair Dominator 32GB RAM (games/encoding)
Asus Sabertooth Z77
Samsung 840 Pro SSD
2TB WD HDD (Green)
Rosewill Bronze 1000w PSU

x8 vs x16 is a marginal difference, especcially with pcie3. so dont worry and keep using your beautifull sabertooth :)
