Im getting an antec 300 illusion case with a 2500k and a 6950. I'm a little unsure as to what mobo I should grab. I plan on going Crossfire down the road with dual 6950s but the mobo lingo is confusing. Which would be ideal?
When intel socket 1155 mbs run two cards in either crossfire or SLi the slots are running at x8 , instead of x16 .
And it makes no detectable difference to performance .
When you go to pci-e 3.0 x16 you double the bandwidth of ...which is technically interesting ..but since current graphics cards are not restricted by half the bandwidth of pci-e 2.0 x16 .......
..its just a meaningless number
