I have an EVGA X58 SLI LE and 2 GTX 260's. In order to use the PCI slot I can place one GTX 260 in the 16x slot and the other has to go in the 4x slot. I was wondering if this would cause problems with SLI setup or if it was nothing to be concerned about. Any help anyone can provide would be great, appreciate it.

Meh, with what I play an sli setup of gtx 260's should work well, 896 mb's oper card, works for me, lol. The slots are setup as:
PCI-E 2.0 x16
PCI-E x1
PCI-E 2.0 x8
PCI
PCI-E x4
PCI-E x8
In the PCI slot I put a killer NIC just to see if they work or not.

DONT use a 4x slot for sli, you will take a HUGE performance hit.
