It is interesting the way it works, and that article certainly exaplains it much better than I did :)
But in the grand scheme of things, it really doesnt hurt either way you set it up.

Interesting....thanx 4 your input,i added to your rep,and there will be space the thickness of a gtx580 between the two,cause i saw people have 3 gtx580's on the same board,and i would prefer to have them as 1 and 3 rather than like 1 and 4... and i saw reports,so i am gonna forget about the sli 560's so i am gonna look for the xact same card i have so i can start this sli thing of gtx580

I have just made this switch and realizing there isn't much solid information one can grab on google concerning this particular switch. ...yes there is a big difference. Especially in the way of anti-aliasing where as on the 5850 AA means a massive hit to frame rate, with the gtx580 it doesn't...
