Is there a significant increased performance when you have 2 gtx 460 on x8x8 than 1 on x16?

should I even bother getting a second gtx 460?

BTW I have the msi p55a g55 mobo

so the x8x8 and x16x16 have a subtle difference.

The 2nd review says that the processor is more important in sli.

Would the i5 760 do its job?

Apaprently, your mobo doesn't support SLI. I didn't bother to check earlier, just tried to answer your question that 2x460 is a fine idea, even if x8-x8.

Unfortunately, it looks like you will need another mobo to do that.

Yeah..... but you know whats weird...

When I was looking for a mobo it said that this motherboard supports sli on msi's website.

I just checked and it says N/A for its sli... when it said Y for sli.
wow...
Wouldnt x8x8 support sli? does it need to be specificly programed for sli?

Yes. The mobo needs to have a chip set - er, pay a license fee - to support SLI.
