That board was cheap as well, normally around $190 compared to the $400ish of the Force.
In my country the OC is $233.15 and the OC Force is $274.50

To be honest, I can't afford any of the PLX board except for the OC Force, the rest just is too pricey, The 3 780Ti's are stretching the budget WAY TOO FAR already.
The X79 might be okay, but I would die slowly inside knowing the X99 chipset is on its way.

I know exactly how you feel the same reason why I didn't get a 4930k tongue.gif

So I guess the final question is, settle for 2-way SLI or wait for X99 and blow a lot more money biggrin.gif
For which I still have to find a job to afford the entire system rolleyes.gif

TBH i would rather have a nice motherboard and a good nice 6 core that you will be able to keep using for years to come when more and more things use those cores, then have tri-sli 780Ti's, which is a huge waste of money. Even if your running a 6 monitor setup you don't need that much power.

So are you saying X79 or X99?

you also need to consider CPU cost of X79.

2-way SLI with GTX 780's is extreme overkill at 1080p at max settings. Does great running 3 screens 5760x1080 as well.

2 780Ti should even be able to handle 1440p. At 1080p you are set for at least 2 years. Imo just get haswell 4770k a nice board like ASUS or Gigabyte and only buy 2 780Ti's. That should be more than enough.

You don't want to spent like $1500 or over and accept PLX latency on X87 boards just go 2 way SLI much better since there is enough bandwidth for high resolutions.
