nVidia chipsets?

where are the 2X16 PCI-E (2X16 SLI) motherboards? I'm looking to upgrade my 2X8 SLI mb for one that supports 2X16 SLI AND an AMD Quad CPU. my vid cards are 16x, suffer greatly @ 8x and I don't need/want to change any other hardware.
CrossFire is not an option at this time even tho there are lots more of them out there. it's the money and I already have the rest.
any ideas/suggestions appreciated.

Ron

The nvidia 780a chipset supports 2 X 16 SLI, Asus makes a couple of boards based on the 780a.

My 680i supports 2 x 16 and 1 x 8.
The 780i does as well.

To be honest....for sli those are great boards. I once said I would never stray from AMD..The power hunger in me won though....
