I can't do the formula, it only does 2 way SLI. Hitman is choking my 2GB 670's. I have put my old 1080P back & playing maxed out on it... LOL I know, I know!

im not hateing on apple..i just cant see jumping thrue there hoops and paying the premium for there products..yes they are great and hold there value and rarely have problems..i almost bought an iphone 5 a few weeks ago..i said to verizon..well if i dont like it i can just sell it as people will pay big bucks for it..a win win right...wrong. i have to have the phone on my cell phone number for at least 6 months before i can change it..and if i have a problem i have to drive 3 hours to the apple store..if it breaks i only get one replacement..and only one curtasy call to apple if i have hardware problems or to troubleshoot..the second call will cost me!!! so i waited and i the note 2 just came out and thats what my next phone is


i know in 2013 thunderbolt port will be used by several people in there products..i was asking what is out now.

The reason why I chose the Asus Maximus V Extreme motherboard and Intel Core i7 3770K is because I (own them) don't plan on ever running more than two graphics cards in SLI, as for the monitor 1920x1080P is just fine for me personally. However if you think your going to be running more than two graphics cards in SLI, then I would go for X79 for the native PCIe 3.0 x8/x8/x8/x8 bandwidth without having to rely on a PLX bridge chip!

Do you know how big of a performance hit or lag that the PLX chip brings?

PLX 8747 will incur a 5% gpu performance penalty when only 1 gpu is used because of the way the PLX works, all data goes thru it regardless. And obviously it will be down that 5% in other gpu configs as well.

I knew it wasn't a lot, it's not noticeable in real world gaming from what I've read. I think too many rely on Benchmarks...

benchmarks arent nothing..dont go by them as every product that comes off the line is better or worse..also benchmarks most of the time have noting to do with real world performance..only shows what it can do better..yes its better.but real world you cant tell one from the other if it was under a curtain.

^^You realize it adds latency right? If you had no choice then the option of z77 w/ PLX is great but there is another option out there. For ex. 3820 and a RIVF for equivalent money.

In real world benches it will be down a lot of FPS in quadfire. In the scope of things it not a huge percentage, but it still is performance you are leaving on the table. In the link below, ignore the metro benches because it is a gpu limited bench due to metros horrific coding. This review itself is rather limited in scope but you can see what happens in a game that scales very well like Dirt.

The Asus Premium is keeping up with the X79's for the most part, but the lower end boards are struggling somewhat bad. The G1 isn't too bad either. I actually read this before..... I've read a couple of them. Toms hardware has a review out. The 3930K Vs. 2600K. On average it beats the 2600K by 15%. I was going to go X79, until I read that. 15% @ the time didn't justify me switching to a whole new platform that would be a grand, cause I would get a RIVE & 3930K. The performance hit isn't big enough for me to ditch a free 3770K
