Slots 1 and 3 are shared
Slots 4 and 5 are shared
Slots 6 and 7 are shared

=( I just wan't it to work.

16x16x8x>16x8x8x? does it even matter? If one card is running @ 8x wouldnt all other card's be forced to only run as fast as it?

That's what I thought... And has it been shown to make a "not-margin-of-error" difference, if this is not the case, at any res or settings?

I think one question we need to be asking ourselves is "will PCI-E 3.0 make a difference at 8x speeds over 8x PCI-E 2.0?".

Yes, available bandwidth... he's asking though whether you'd see a real world difference between them with today's cards. And generally speaking the difference is 5% or less.

I am in the same boat though. I can't decide if I should upgrade now. If I don't The next jump is 2015 per reports.

Actually no, I'll see if I can find it (unless its in your sig)

But yeah I've been feeling the itch lately and Seeing as I heard a lot of great things about Ivy + how the x58 was a dead end, I figured why not, though I've seen many forums with peeps still rockin their 920-960's I'm just mainly having some issues with my current board and figured why not, its been over 3 years anyways. Seeing as I'd ONLY be updating the board/CPU/memory, I dont' see it as a full upgrade anyways, which leaves me open later for the 2015/16 rollouts.


As far as 3 Titans go, I'm still unsure if I want to go for a third, as I"m leaning towards a 2nd one right now, as I"m getting low frame rates on most of my games which I KNOW sounds off, and I believe its mainly software and something else, even though I'm running surround ( was originally running a 4 monitor setup ) I want to jump back to 5 again, as I upgraded from 2x 470's to my first Titan. And prior to my 470's I was running a GTX 7950 on my old Sager 9750 Laptop. So I feel I can at least justify this as somewhat of an upgrade.

As for those that are WAY against onboard sound and Wireless, I've got a few questions mainly to those that would rather die in a fire than approach the subject.

As a gamer I never used to touch onboard myself until I gotmy X58 and hooked it up to the optical sound, was blown away by the quality as my previous card was the Audigy ZX2, so was pretty surprised at the recent catch up. Now around the time I DID have an external USB SB box for testing but to me it sounded the same. With that said and done how much of a difference do you honestly hear/feel from an internal DAC such as Asus's top name brand sound cards and Creative's latest and greatest ( while some may call them trash they've been around as long as I can remember (remembering the x286 days =x ))

That and Wireless, as I recently purchased the Asus internal AC1750 card for my PC since i got the Asus AC1750 router. I LOVE the throughput and have yet to see any issues BUT I have run cables throughout my house in the walls, and am using a switch as my family is big on the internet, mainly netflix and all, though thats useless info atm. So would I really get the jump on using my LAN vs Wireless? Or is it mainly peace of mind?

Sorry to take things off topic slightly, just taking information and noting things prior to pushing the trigger on some of my future purchases, as this board DOES look sexy, I'm also curious what the best recommended CPU Fan would be recommended in regards to leaving enough space open for 3x SLI if I go that route.

I only ever use the WiFi on my MaxVForm when my ISP drops for some reason. Why? Because I hate USB cables, too many of them to begin with.

You can see the difference in benchmarks & things that give a score, time, PPD etc., the performance gain is there in real world too, but who notices something finishing 2 seconds faster without a stopwatch? It just doesn't have the noticeable gains like a new cpu or gpu, so a new gpu or cpu will make more difference than spending big bucks on a fast memory kit.
If going all out on a rig a nice fast memory sure doesn't hurt, but is generally the last thing to spend money on if on a budget. The fast expensive memory is more for benchmarkers.

The new ROG armour on haswell boards make me cringe.

It's a computer, not a plastic clad toy... Though, many of us use our computers as toy's.
