Help: Gigabyte 680i VS EVGA 680i

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
GIGABYTE GA-N650SLI-DS4 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard/ GIGABYTE GA-N680SLI-DQ6 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard VS EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

Okay basically, I have been looking at these two boards, and these two boards, I really like. Well actually three boards, since I couldn't come to an end to choose either the 650i or 680i for the Gigabyte. I just want to hear about some comparisons between the Gigabyte and evga. For some reason, towards evga, I feel like it has a lot of potential, note for overclocking. If anyone could point me toward the right direction, thank you. Yes, I am still debating with evga 680i.

Well, the gigabyte one has all silver capacitors, and the EVGA one does not. So if that's important to you, that'll make the decision easy.

Well, I'm not sure how much it can be handled by the heat, so it would have to depend.

EVGA has the better quality and better warrenty depending on the revision that you get. EVGA also has better customer service in case you have problems.

That's a helpful thing too. Since you have a 680i, could it have a lot of overclocking potential, maybe better than the gigabyte? =O

Any good strong overviews? Do you have any cons with it?

It is the same board, but it's just stripped. I just noticed they dropped the price for it. I guess Black Pearl will be coming out soon too..
