All p35 boards are 16x/4x when they have multiple pci-e. Same with x38. I'll probably just sell off one of my GT cards, sell my other GT thats coming from my stepup and buy new bowling balls.

You could make money if you were to sell your video cards and motherboard and were to buy a set of 3870's and a motherboard, me thinx. and you'd have very similar performance

Grab a couple of the 3870's from Best Buy online before they are gone. You can at least save some money and not have to wait.
