    i believe it will be x16 and x4. So it'll be kinda crippled. Id get a P45 board and run em x8 and x8.

    P35 is 16x+electrical 4x. Get a P45 or X38.
    also P35 is PCIE 1.0 so its not worth it at all

    the p35 only 16x and 4x with 1.1 pci-e version so my advice forget it or go for p45 cuz it is
    8x and 8x with 2.0 pci-e version

    Yup. This yet again confirms the awesome power of the 4830's in CF. They overclock up to a 4850 and yield better than a single 4870. It's too bad they start to fall off at higher resolutions and AA/AF.
