I don't know about the EVGA 680i. Seen so nay have problems here and other forums. And I notice that you are using a ASUS P5B Deluxe board.

If there are problems with the eVGA boards then you're going to experience those same problems across the board with all NVIDIA reference designs (eVGA, XFX, BFG, basically card add-in partners). The other 680i options are generally expensive (Gigabyte, Asus, Abit, etc.)

The 650i boards are more than sufficient for most users and are a lot cheaper.

Possibly a computer controlled ant farm? or possibly a small nuclear reactor?

You could wait for x38 mobos as they can do SLI now?

The EVGA and XFX 680i's are from different manufacturers. I am not sure on the BFG.

I can vouch for the P5K deluxe, recently swapped out my Gigabyte for it. Overclocking and stability are incredible so far. Even with vdroop I can run my e6600 at 3.2Ghz at only 1.385v! (Stable with Orthos for 9 hours)

Asus P5k Deluxe P35. Just read that it supports Crossfire. But in your sig your running a EVGA 7950GX2.

Yep, I wont be going the SLI route (I'm upgrading to a single 8800GTX soon). You can run SLI with some hacked drivers but it's not recommended.

i have a 6600 on a p5b deluxe and it works very well. running it at 3.2ghz on stock cooling with zero issues (1.3v). could probably go even further i just dont feel the need to.
