The asus board or the board i have picked . I am new to sli and am hoping the two cards i have picked with the mobo i have picked will do fine and not loose such performance.
has only 16 PCIe lanes so any mid-priced
board will drop from x16/x0 to x8/x8 with a second card installed. The only workaround is to install a PCIe bridge with repeater function that sends the data from all 16-lanes to two x16 cards simultaneously, and such motherboards will cost far more.
