i paid 200 for my evga 680i a1 and it overclocks my old C2D and my C2Q just fine..... and SLi is a waste of money ??
Do you usually just post some random stuff you heard on a diff thread ? or what ?
SLi scales just fine for me and many others.. but thanks for telling everyone with SLi they are basically morons and wasted their money... well played
If those aren't good reasons than I don't know what are. BTW I bet that you aren't even running your Q6600 at 3.6GHZ with that 680i board.
You could get a good P35 board for $120 that would overclock better, have more BIOS options, and be more reliable than a good $350 790i sli motherboard. Some of the best P35 boards also support crossfire without taking a hit to motherboard overclocking performance. So if you do the math you might lose around $280 (not adding in the cost of the second card for sli) for a 60% on average increase in pc gaming fps. If someone went out and bought a second 9800GTX for their sli system than they would of spent around an extra $520 altogether for a measly 60% increase in gaming fps.
