Crossroads... P35 or 680i

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
So I got my RMA back today from Evga for my 680i A1.

I know that I switch my stuff a lot but i actually enjoy it.

So I'm trying to decide which to keep basically. The problem with selling the 680i is that it can only be warrantied to me correct? I haven't registered it yet but I was told that you can't register a RMA as someone else.

I wont ever go SLI and they both clock about the same stock. They are both basically brand new. The MAIN thing I like more about the P5K is the ESata connectors lol.

So what would you do here? I'm feeling nostalgic from my old Evga 680i AR but I just don't know what to do.

Only thing about that is they used the 680i LT and I've heard that it's slightly different and the full 680i will perform better. I don't know for sure if that true or not.

Give the 680i to me.

Er, I'd go P35. Everyone says they dominate OCing wise, and I doubt they'll stay that price once everyone catches on.

Who is everyone?

I have been able to push an E6700 and an X6800 on the asus P5N32-E (680i) up to 522 FSB stable on air (With extra cooling on the nb/sb mind you). And I can run a pair of 8800gtx (well I did for awhile and may again in the near future).

Also, no SLI support which is the main reason to buy a 680i (or 650i) board in the first place.

Most people are fine without SLI. I have not/will not ever go SLI because IMO it is a waste of money. Of course that is subjective because my income is much less than someone out of college with an actual working job.

Even so, I would still rather spend my money elsewhere in my system than a second video card.
