hey guys,

i dont get something,when i wanna use more than one grfx card on a board , lets say a crossfire of RADEON HD5770

and i wanna have both cards on a PCIe X16 is that possible?

or is it always 2 PCIe that become X8 when i use crossfire/sli?

can somebody explain how it works,to me?? i really dont get it...

1- Not all the mobos are x8 on Crossfire, for exmaple this mobo support Crossfire at x16 mode.
2- You won't see a big difference between Crossfire at x16 or x8.
