    Just a quick one as I'm about to pull the trigger on a motherboard for a dedicated Sandy Bridge folding rig; when running two GPUs, will I see any appreciable difference between an Asus P8P67 with slightly hobbled PCIe lanes (one 16x, and one 4x max), or a full fat Pro version with two 8x PCIe? I'm guessing either definitely not as the cards will nowhere near saturate even a 1x PCIe when just folding, or at least not enough to justify the £40 premium.
    Any thoughts?

    Stick with the P8P67 - BTs review demonstrated that its still an excellent overclocker and folding cards don't need much bandwidth.

    Funny how none of the reviewers noticed this! I don't feel quite so 'last year' with an X58 Sabertooth now, but I'm sure I will do in about another month :waah:
