Step-Up to 790i - Page 2

post #11 of 12
hmm, depends what you consider a benefit. I have my best superpi, bandwidth and 3dmark with 790i vs 780i. I haven't done side by side with the same memory speed to know if it is motherboard or ram for sure.

edit: didn't see your latest. not a bad move at all - Nehalem will tear it up. I couldn't wait that long though

Yet again another Mhill oopsie.

Please tell me you see no advantage to a substantial memory bandwidth/speed increase and I will respond.

I say ask this because the difference is substantial and it does represent substantial improvement in gaming with respect to smoothness and choking. Particularily in those games that are more cpu/memory bound..

I traded 2x9800gx2's because quad scaling is disappointing. I used the money for DDR3/790i ultra and am very happy with my decision.. I do have 2x8800gtx's to fall back on though.
