I bet tiki gets it just to get a new one even though he just spent 400 on his current one.

Interesting layout. Not as much room inbetween the cards though with the DFI board. You use the first and middle slot for SLI.

Good news is that 2 PCI slots are available.

Sadly you would not be able to fit a 2 slot video card in that last PCIe slot. I tried with my PhysX in the last PCI slot on my previous motherboard. It doesn't really fit.

That's true the way my case is the card would sit on top of my PSU and that can't be good.

Jeffrey says:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...70#post1090570
TiKiMaN says:
i wonder how well it will overclock
Jeffrey says:
I bet it will OC like a Mutha
TiKiMaN says:
dang the board has space for X-Fi even with 3 2 slot video cards!
Jeffrey says:
yeah, there are no puny little pcie x1 or x2 slots here
TiKiMaN says:
it looks like a great board
Jeffrey says:
Plus I bet that the #1 and #2 PCIE slots are the primary slots for SLI leaving the last PCIE #3 Slot for using as the Physics/Graphics Card
TiKiMaN says:
I'll bet you are right
TiKiMaN says:
well fetch!
