Default GTX 285 and PCI-E 8x....

So, I've had this 8600 GT card in for physx... I wasn't quite aware until just recently that having it in cuts my pci-e slots down to 8x each since this board really wasn't designed for any multi-gpu implementations even though it supports crossfire and non-sli setups with 2 pci-e slots...

The question I have is... would that be cutting my performance down significantly?

I ran a 3dmark'06 bench and pulled in 15,500... I am too far removed from the industry anymore to know if that's good or not.

Advice?
