Default Re: Battle Royale: SLI 32x vs SLI 16x

I have both a Evga 680i SLI and a Asus 650i SLI and they both get about the same frame rate ,with the 650i SLI I can overclock my CPU to 2040 but the memory will not overclock as high ,about 1000mhz ,With my 680i SLI it will only go to 1650 stable on the CPU but the memory will overclock 1200mhz and beyond.Even though the EVga 680i SLI cost more ,I think it is the better board not because it has two 16x PCIe lanes,but because it is more stable and voltages does'nt fluxuate as bad ,I think the 650i SLI just has a 3 phase power converter and the 680i SLI has 6 or 8 phase power converter.My voltages such as the CPU does not fluxuate at all with my 680i SLI and with my 650i SLI it does ,it will be 1.31v and jump to 1.38 where as my Evga 680i SLI stays at 1.35v and does not move.

i've come to the conclusion that there isn't such thing as a future proof mobo (thought it was my nForce 4 lanparty sli-dr - but i just moved to intel...) so from now on, ill get the middle range mobo's/maybe even low range

performance is neglable and $ would be better spent elsewhere

Yeah or even smaller CRTs. I play some games at 2048 x 1536 on my 21in CRT.

I agree, espec. with all these people having problems with their EVGA mobos and even the ASUS Strikers.

Get a mid-range mobo, then:

1. A good CPU
2. A good PSU
3. A good GPU

FTW
