is the 750i FTW the best.....

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
is the 750i FTW the best.....ddr2 and sli motherboard currently and out and forever?


all the new motherboards are going to transfer over to ddr3/nahaliem/amdspiders so its quite confident to say that the 750i FTW will possible be one of the last sli ddr2 boards out.
with the exception of the 780i (i dont plan to tri-sli) or the many sata ports on the 780i compared to the 750i (i only got 2 hardrives...maybe one more tops and a dvd drive) it seems that the 750i FTW is the best choice for me along with a future proof sli to go quad-sli with my 9800gx2.

my rig as it is is MORE than enough for what i do now and in the next couple of years (i dont plan on doing any heavy gaming in the future) and i just want to finish off my rig with this mother board, a new heatsink (TRUE or Noctuna), possible another hardrive (i got 250gb, a 150gb raptor, and a soon to be 300gb velicroraptor) and last but not least another 9800gx2 IF i do need it.


thoughts? opinions? discuss.

If you don't get another 9800GX2 it is really pointless to get the 750i FTW, so if you get the 9800GX2, order the 750i FTW at the same time.
BAM!

Your NB heatsink? If that is the case, I'd pull it off and replace the TIM, could be your problem. your temps are also dependent on ambient temps, if yours are high then your temps will be higher.
