Are you really going quad?

Btw, did you know a 3820 RIVE 7970 quadfire is only 3fps down to a 3960X Extreme 11 Lightning 7970 setup, mind you both running equivalent clocks? I haven't seen any z77 get close though that may be because no one has been crazy enough to take z77 all the way, full tilt.

It depends on which motherboard your talking about, the Asus Maximus V Extreme has the ability to run 1-2 cards in native PCIe 3.0 x8/x8.

^^That is true. That is the one thing the MVE has that no other plx z77 board has afaik. But it begs the question, why get it anyways if you are not going quads? That's a lot of premium for the open ended option of going quad. That said, it is the only board that will not penalize you for running one gpu due to the switch Asus pioneered.

I'm going Tri-SLI, I already have the 3770K, my nephew got it VIA Retail Edge & gave it to me as a Christmas Present. I haven't even opened the box...... Only thing I'm trying to sell are my 670's. I see no point into selling a 3770K to cop a 3820. If I go 2011, I wouldn't be buying a 3820. I know that's for sure. The reason I made this thread was for someone or a group of people to show me why I should buy a certain Motherboard or why go 2011 for a good reason, not just for a little percentage hit. If the gap was like Core 2 Quad & Sandy Bridge as what I switched from. Then with no doubt in my mind I would go. That's like, having the choice of buying a ZR1, GTR, or a Aventador & buying the Aventador cause it's 10 & 13MPH faster than the other two, but doesn't really out perform them anywhere else. The price difference is 320 & almost a 400K difference.

Oh Free 3770K? Now that's a good reason to get a MVE.

searously just buy a z77 board and buy 2 classified 680s..sometimes you can get them on sale for like 550..or even an msi tf3 4gb cards...i get way over 120fsp with max settings on almost everygame in 1080p on 120hz monitor..i would go ahead and buy a z77 board and start off with 2 gtx 680 4gb cards..and if your not happy buy another one..personally the scaling plus the plx chip will make it really not worth the cost.

Yeah my nephew is a MGR @ Bestbuy & they do something with Intel called edge program, retail edge... I haven't even open the chip yet. It needs a home. My son taking the 2600K from me.It's a costa Rica chip too, my 2600K is a Costa Rica chip & I can clock it to 5.2GHz on a H100 stable & highest temp is 76 @ 1.48 volts...

My 2c, go for the Asus Maximus V Extreme. Yes its overkill for most, but it is awesome overkill. I got the Gene V for my sig rig, first proper build, and I have loved every second of it. As for as OC is concerned, IMHO it is the best out there. So many options..... I'm still finding new settings
