It depends on the motherboard. Some are 8x when you SLI/Crossfire, some are 16x on 1 card and 8x on the other card. But since most cards now are PCI-Express 2.0, the bandwidth has been doubled. So whether you get 8x or 16x doesn't really matter.

Buy that PSU from Buy.com, because it's cheaper there.

yes but if that coke can is gold plated, im willing to spend the extra lol, Im a style/performance type guy, i love style, im big on that, also big on performance, but why should i get this PSU when i can get the other one for around the same price and it would come in handy for future upgrades, incase i ever wanted to get another GTX 260 216(id have to get a new mobo).
