Default Re: 680i is going to be the death of me.

Look, it's easy. If you want SLI, then go get the DS4 if that's the only SLI board the shop will sell you (if they don't have mine.) If you don't want SLI, then get the DS3. It's an Intel chipset and is both cheaper and more reliable than the DS4 will be.

There's no reason to buy an SLI board if you don't want SLI.

As for performance, you should notice a nice increase going to a Conroe from an X2 system. I did.

Where are you located, by the way?

i7-2700k @ 5.0 GHz
Nvidia GeForce 570 2.5GB Tri-SLI
Asus P67 WS Revolution (Tri-SLI)
OCZ Vertex SSD x 4 (Raid 5)
G.Skill 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
PC Power & Cooling 950W PSU
