Re: -= Official Intel P67 / Sandy Bridge / i3 2100 / i5 2500K / i7 2600K Review Threa
The Z68 still just allows for 2 PCI-e slots at x8. All my games are GPU-limited right now running at 5760x1080 in 3D Vision, and the ones that aren't are running at a very high FPS anyways, and thats with my 965 at just 3.9GHz. I think to truly see benefits from running SB at the resolutions I run at, I'm going to need either a 3rd GTX 580, or wait for the next generation of video cards. None of the current SB mobos can do Tri-SLI, and I would just be better served waiting for Sandy Bridge E for the next generation of video cards anyways.
Perhaps I would be better served upgrading my ATI machine to SB now instead, but Newegg is faking me out with all these SB mobos listed but then clicking on them leads to a SOLD OUT screen.
