EVGA 780i vs 680i~any advantages...?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys its another day of n00b questioning from me .

I want to buy a 780i Mobo but comparing it to the 680i its really pointless to spend that extra money on a mobo? The 780i has only got 3*PCI E X16 slots opposed to the 680i having only 2. Other than that all I see is its only a different N6 series.

Question no. 2. I am wanting to setup a wireless station. My current PC already has a wireless transmitter. Does the 680i or 780i have both a transmitter and a receiver? I want to surf on my laptop when my brother is on the PC?

1. 780i has support for Tri-Sli, overclocks quad-cores well (the only 680i that overclocks quadcores well is the A1 or something like that). the MAJOR difference is that the 780i series supports the newer 45nm quads (yorkfield), while the 6 series chipset does not.

2. What the hell is a "wireless station"?

mine is going to be the Q6600 not the yorkfield.


I meant I wan a wireless sort of thing. Where I can share bandwidth(i.e. internet connection) with my brother while he is on the PC. If I wish to come on this forum and talk to you guys but won't be possible because my brother occupies the computer.

okay #1: 680i does not support true 16x X2 SLI its still 16x by 8x but with a little more bandwidth.

#2 780i Evga board if ordered now is rock solid with the P04 bios installed.

#3 780i with p04 bios has whoreishly good results OC'ing quads,

#4 If my 780i was a women, i'd put a ring on its finger, and have many children with it

that is not correct the 680i has full 16x/16x capabilities. also the 680i can clock a quad just fine mine kept my quad at 4125mhz 24/7
