Default should i get the asus deluxe sli mobo?

i have the expert dfi mobo, i picked it over the abit fatality, but it has cometo my knowledge that asus makes a sli board that has 2 independant pci-ex bandwidths totaling 32x instead of the typical 16x. Should i get this mobo since i just got another BFG 7800gtx 512 mb after saving for 2 months of my pay.

Yeah you should if you can find it anywhere in stock. Then you would have just about the best gaming computer you can buy. Most places though are always out of stock.

Someone got a link? as I think I'm either missing something or getting the raw deal, as us UK'ers always do! LOL As far as I knw Asus only made one SLI MOBO range (A8N/A8V) and the only reason to buy the Deluxe version of that was if 4 more SATAII ports and another Gigibit thingey were worth the extra $$$ to ya.

Well it's actually the A8N32. Usually when running SLI the pci-e slots run at 8x instead of 16x. Well with this motherboard it dosent run at 8x it runs at 16x. So this will make allow your video cards to run faster. Here's a link
