Does SLI really scale that well now? - Page 2

I am trying to justify almost spending $200 for a mobo by seeing that it has a lifetime warranty and that it supports SLI and overclocks and looks amazing however it's very hard....
i recommend the EVGA 750i FTW. (Check link in my sig for more info)

get one of those, upgrade a Q6600 to 3.6GHz, and enjoy the benefits of SLi.

i can almost guarantee that four cores running at 3.6GHz each will last still a very long time, even with the newer processors coming out. (look what happened with the Yorkfields)

I built 2 systems with the EVGA 750i and was easily able to get 3.8 out of both with a Q6700.

thats on air btw....


how much better should quad overclocking be?

i want to see first hand experiences that it can handle my E6300's fully capable 505 FSB.
(at least 500 for 3.5ghz)

I am trying SO hard to justify spending this much becuase i have always been someone having no need to spend more than $130 for a board that overclocked very well. Now that SLI is scaling much better i want a 750i.

Really? I thought they were the 7XX equivalent of the 650i. My bad.

I am considering upgrading eventually to a quad-core however honestly i can not find the need with my E6300 at a powerful and stable 3.55ghz. I was hoping that there would be more powerful quad-cores to be supported in the future.

I wish that there was a 750i in open box becuase i would probably buy it.

Also which would be better the Asus 750i or the MSI? Both are in open box for 120

Yes that definitely makes me believe that i can get the full potential of my E6300 just as my DS3R did. Now i just have to make my self shell out 190 for it.

I also am not going to lie that the NB cooler on the 750i FTW makes me say "that would look flippin sweet in my antec 900"

However i don't want that to be the only thing i spent the extra 40 bucks for (70 if i got an open box)

it is worth it. and $190 is cheap for a board like this.

the only bad thing about the 750i FTW is that it has only 4 SATA ports, and only 1 ethernet port. Unless you need more than those, if i were you, i would get one

There is no other board with close to this kind of performance and true x16/x16 SLI in this price range.

GL saving and hope to see you in the 750i community soon! I'm off to bed.

You're right, the current boards WILL NOT support the forthcoming Nehalem processors. But a nehalem build will be very pricey initially. I hope that my current rig will last me until Sandy Bridge. Then we'll see.
