X48 wasn't made for the average gamer, it was made for the people who will do anything for just a few extra FPS, when you are dishing out so much money saving money by losing a few fps is a very moot point.
The DFI DK-X38 is $149.99 while the Gigabyte board is $138, if I could get 7 extra FPS for just $12 dollars I would be stupid not to buy the DFI board.
EDIT> Right now I am saving the money for a Dry Ice build, all together it is going to be around $700 in components, with $700 I could build a killer rig but I would rather spend it on the DICE to say that I have used DICE.
At 2560x1680 or whatever the resolution is, 2 4870X2's in crysis would be crying and if your minimum framerate with P45 is 23FPS and your minimum FPS with X48 is 30FPS the X48 is well worth the money. The difference is a playable game vs a jerky game.
I will turn down Image Quality just to get a better framerate, as good as the game may look if it is jerky it just ruins the whole experience IMOEdited by huntman21014 - 12/13/08 at 1:05pm
