Re: So why should I buy a GTX280 again?
Yeah I did, I thought I'd give it another go with a new board. One of my gripes with SLI was the hit the CPU takes. Well, with this board that actually overclocks, the CPU hit is pretty much gone, I pushed the CPU a little more to compensate. Also, the 177.98s seem to make SLI much better. It must be the combination of the extra CPU power and improved drivers. Not that I'm actually playing anything, but Crysis does feel a little better with the 177.98s, and that's the worst case possible. So other games should have no problem.
I intend to re-evaluate SLI with Warhead and the new drivers that felt better in the short time I used them, after Digital Vibrance is fixed.
