I was planning on buying this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131568) motherboard but I am having second thoughts because it is twice more than other sli motherboards. It says it support at full 16X, 16x mode. On other motherboard it only supports 8x , 8x mode. Is it really worth getting? Any other suggestions?

Nope. The added bandwidth of using full 16x PCI-E slots in SLI does nothing and probably won't for several more years, if ever.

Just get a regular nForce 4 Ultra or SLI board. They all support 16x PCI-E in non-SLI and 8x while running SLI.
