asus vs xfx 790i Ultra? - Page 3

post #21 of 38
i think the gt280 is out on the 17th june (don't quote on that though)... and depending the price differance and the final benchies of the gt280 id hold on and see how much they cost **dreams vividly**...

tbh from what ive read the gx2's are fast... but not fast enough for the price tags?
(correct me if im wrong...)

well if your going scsi u'd need a pci/pci-e card to connect them up... and i dunno how/if there are compatability issues with certain boards? Might be an idea to find that out and also i'd wait until the gt280's are out and how they compare on benchies before you decide on your graphics?

yeah, that sounds good. And when the gt280s come out then hopfully the 9800gx2 will drop a enough for me to just get 2 of them and actually put my SLI to work. I'm giong to go and check on the compatibility of the scsi right now. Thanks alot for the help.

I like newegg.It's very easey to see thing's.Take a look at the list of 775 motherboard's.Almost all of the 790i's got water cooled north bridges.There is a reason for this.The north bridge run's hot.Heat is the enemy.It rob's us of money and preformance.EVGA has the same bad HS managment it has had on the 680i,780i and now the 790i.




790i



780i
