    No, but graphic cards don't saturate a 8x slot anyway really so no differences other than the chipsets

    Seems a bit wasteful in a way. Technology is further ahead than what we have a need for I suppose. Still not a huge point to quad cores yet and they been out for how many years now? Still..I understand programing for 4 cores is extremely complex. And these new quad cores from intel seem more efficient at what they do.

    Right! And ya know they are about to soon release 6 and 8 core CPU's!

    X38 and X48 are essential for Crossfiring two DUAL GPU cards. In this case each dual |GPU card, although nopt using 16 lanes is definitely using more than 8. If you were to try this in an 8x/8x P45 then results wouldn't be optimal. In a P35 with PCIe 1.1, results would be even worse because 8x/8x PcCIE1.1 = 4x/4x PCIe2.0.

    For crossfiring two single GPU cards a P45 has bandwidth to spare.

    The HD 4770 is actually a REALLY powerful card for the price. Sure, they crippled it with a 128Bit RAM bus (halving bandwidth over a 4850) but they included GDDR5 (which doubles bandwidth back up to near 4850 speeds). It's like someone cutting off both your legs, then replacing them with equally functional robot legs. Sure you're crippled, but they put it right after. There's not enough in it when comparing mid range to high end cards (non dual GPU) IMO. If I thought it worth it I'd have gotten a GTX 285, but not for a mere 15 FPS more on average. On paper they're more powerful, but at my chosen resolution (1680x1050) the 4850 does fine. Two are for bragging rights and because I want to play Crysis.

    As soon as CPU's start using more real time processing structures rather than queueing and then executing, multi core will be much better off. A quad is really nice for Video work, that's for sure. However in Gaming, they tend to take a more lax approach simply because at the moment they can get away without harnessing all the raw power available.

    Ah FurMark not Future Mark..my mistake hehe. Yeah the 4770 is pretty powerful and has huge overclocking potential. I 'was' going to crossfire 2 of them at a later date, as they give the top end (single core) cards a run for their money. Its only really at the higher resolutions they get beaten. And that would be because they simply don't have enough vram. But that wouldn't have affected me.
