I may look into the C version with my Q6600. (In the future, Christmas maybe.)

If I were you, I'd worry about SLI "if" an only when I get a minimum of a 30" LCD display, to truly enjoy the full meaning of SLI. But if you're a benchmark junkie? Go for the 650i.

P5KC is a better overclocking board and one single card is more than enough, such as a GTS 640MB or the GTX.

Thing is that people "only" buy these SLI boards because of the SLI option but in the long run? I can count with the palm of my hands the number of people that are "actually" running SLI.

Some will say......get a high end card now and wait for the 2nd in two years.........time goes by and that never happens. Who wants to run SLI with two old cards? Nobody, that's why you won't even see people running SLI on 7800s, yet there's plenty of SLI boards to go around.

SLI is pointless IMO.

P35, a reliable, stable and capable of a high overclocking chipset.

Well said i'm also building up a system and i was thinking the same thing. Instead of buying to punny 7600's just buy one 8800gts BEAST and you will have the same power and plus it's easier to upgrade

1 8800GTS > 2 7600's by miles and miles.
