Hi, anyone know the cheapest/feature rich board around that supports core 2 duo and dual 2x16x (full 32 lanes) mobo?

cheap and SLi don't go Hand in Hand unfortunately, you pay a definite premium for anything that bears the SLi logo.

This was the cheapest i could find that does what you want

The cheapest would probably be the Asus P5N-D.

I know there wasnt much diff between running dual 16x lanes versus 8x lanes a year ago or so, has much changed since then? are the 8x lanes saturated these days?

Well they're PCI-e 2.0 now, but be aware that although not all cards use all of the bandwidth provided by an 8X PCI-e 2.0 slot, let alone a 16X slot, there are some slight gains from having the full 16 lanes, at least in crossfire, and i would assume the same for SLI.

yeah, id love a full 16x lanes, but not for double the dosh of an older board, maybe the P5n-d board is the way to go $166 at MSY.

still, can get a sli board with 8x lanes for about 60 bucks... hmmm

i guess the FSB differs a lot too, neweer chips run at 1333mhz, where as the older ones run at 800, is there a lot of diff (noticable) between these FSB's?
