Default Re: 680i + 8800gtx sli = lockups?

Yes, I know you have SLI.

I'm not saying SLI is perfect (its not, but you can workaround most problems in one way or another).

I have been using SLI for over a year now and as I first stated, stability wise, my SLI machine has been rock solid, in fact one one of the most trouble free machines I've ever built (not that many of my PC's have given trouble).

680i may be an exception to this (particularly earlier on in its life), but SLI in general, implemented correctly is no less stable in my experience and opinion than a single card machine.

(this coming from someone who was very skeptical about SLI when first introduced by nvidia)

We'll have to agree to disagree. I'm an SLI fan now, obviously, but there's no way in heck it is as stable, overall, as a single card setup. That includes 7-series and 8-series.
