750i or 680i?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been looking at 750i and 680i motherboards and cant decide what to get.The 750i supports pci-e 2.0 and 16x-8x sli mode , but the 680i sli supports 16x-16x sli. I read that pci-e 2.0 doubles the bandwidth so does that make the 750i 32x-16x?

Im not looking for overclocking or anything like that in them yet.just wanted to know which one would be better to run sli 9600gt's.

Do u meen the 780i ?

If so then buy the EVGA 780i good board overclocks well.

No point in buying a 680i now.

don't get a 680i, at this point they're outdated tech. this isnt to say they arent good, but id rather buy a 750i for your uses.

I would recommend the MSI P7N SLI Platinum 750i. The MSI board has received great reviews: Hardware Zone. It is OCing the Quads way better then its 650i predessesor and it looks like it will support the 45nm Yorkfield quads, which the 680i cannot.

So what makes the MSI P7N SLI Platinum special? We'll you'd probably have noticed by now that the board actually has three PCIe x16 slots onboard. And according to its product specifications, all three slots are PCIe 2.0 compatible. Since the nForce 430 MCP has no PCIe lanes on its own, it would seem that MSI has enabled the remaining eight lanes on the nForce 200 for this board. With this setup, the MSI P7N SLI Platinum can support up to three PCIe 2.0 graphics cards in a x16/x8/x8 setup. This is one of the biggest draws MSI has for the P7N SLI Platinum.
