Hi Guys,

I will be upgrading my VGA, CPU and M/B

I already bought Gigabyte 512 Mb 8800GT with PCI.E 2.0 support and Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16ghz

My question is does it make any difference for me to get X38 chipset if I am running single VGA.

Which I dont know if I go ever SLI.

Having X38 with PCI.E 2.0 port vs P35 Chipset has only PCIE1.0 does the PCI.E 2.0 will give me any performance difference with 8800GT?

No, you will see no performance difference with PCi E 2.0, because PCi ex 16 isn't a bottleneck yet.

You can't SLI the x38 without using hacked drivers anyways. So the P35 seems like a better choice in your situation.

You can use SLI mobos with a single gfx card you just have to make sure the jumper settings are correct
