How does the 4x PCI-E affect the video cards performance, whether CrossFire or SLI? Is it noticeable difference in performance over 2 16x slots? I am wanting to try and make an upgradeable computer, but I hate to have to spend $250+ on a board with 2 16x slots if a single 16x paired with a 4x will work just as well.
The computer I will build will not be a full top of the line setup, looking at a 6750 processor with 8800GT and DDR2 6400 memory.

Can you rephrase that? Are you saying that either choice will see improvements? Or that the single main stream will be better than the SLI? I wouldn't do SLI (or CrossFire) right now, I am just thinking down the road it might be cheaper to get a lesser second card than a new mid-high range card.
