  • Opinion: Best C2Duo SLIx16 Motherboard?

    So, I won two new 7600gts from tweaktown. I currently have one on my gigabyte ga-965G-ds3. The one game I've tried using my new system - dawn of war, looks amazing to me. But now I want more. I'm thinking SLI. If I were to sell my mobo and get another for the purpose of sli, what's a good pick?
    Case: Antec P180 ** PSU: Ultra-V 600W
    Main: EVGA 680i 122-CK-NF68**
    CPU: E6700 2.66GHz
    CPU cooling: Arctic Freezer 7 Pro ** RAM: 2GB Corsair XMS2
    GPU: BFG GTX 295..** Samsung 206bw LCD
    OS: Vista Ultimate 32bit

    If u r thinking about 680i SLI boards these boards should be in ur list.Asus
    Striker Extreme is the best in many reviews.


    1.Asus Striker Extreme (Best)

    2.EVGA 680i SLI

    3.Abit IN9 32X-MAX &

    4. ECS PN2-SLI2 Extreme

    680i SLI chipset motherboards support three PCI-Express graphics cards with two in SLI mode.

    U can check this review of 680i :-

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    U can also go for the 590i SLI boards which r relatively cheaper than the 680i boards.

    The best boards are :-
    ------------------------------------------------
    1.P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP

    2. ECS PN1 SLI2

      ASUS = WAY WAY WAY overpriced and TERRIBLE support. They are slow to release bios and the new releases almost always fail to do much if anything.

      EVGA 680i is the best choice for the money. Period.
      GIgabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
      AMD FX8120 @ 4GHz
      Patriot 1866MHz EL series 2X4GB DDR3
      Powercolour HD 6970 2GB w/XFX 8800GT 512MB Hybrid PhysX
      Creative X-FI titanium HD w/Technics class A 300W amp and tower speakers
      PC P&C 500W PSU
      2TB Seagate
      Coolermaster 690II w/Corsair H100 tucked under the hood

        Ya, EVGA 680i is the ideal choice if money is concerned.
