Closed Cheapest x16/x16 motherboard for 1155 SLI? Tags: Motherboards World Of Warcraft SLI Product Last response: August 13, 2012 6:42 AM in Motherboards Share austing a b V Motherboard August 13, 2012 2:34:06 AM Okay I seen alot of ASUS P67's for 80$ and was like wow thats cheap for SLI, but they only run 8x/8x. What do you guys know that is the cheapest (But reliable) SLI board that runs x16/x16 in SLI? Doesnt have to have PCIE 3.0 though. Last question, is the extra money for x16/x16 worth it? or is really 8x/8x about the same?

The performance increase from x16/x16 is negligible. Save 100 and get a x8/x8 setup.
