I know it's fun to believe in a new product.. but I think you guys are simply buying into the hype and false marketing.

You claim that your HD 4830 is dying. But if you bought a high-end video card, surely you realize that the IGP inside Sandy Bridge would be 1/10 the performance of your current card.

You might as well buy a used video card for 10$ - it will be no different.

Also, I think you don't understand what SSD Caching is.

What you describe is using an SSD the way it's meant to be used - as an actual drive.

SSD caching, is where you take a perfectly functional SSD and glue it to an old, slow HDD to make the HDD perform slightly faster when it comes to small files.

I did a lot of research on this matter and found (like in my above post) that it would be far more economical to store small files on an SSD, and not on a large HDD, considering the current costs.

So, really, I'm sure you guys don't have bad intentions, but you're buying into this for all the wrong reasons.

I am just trying to protect you.

I appreciate your concern and thank you for that....but I flat out don't care about the graphics and if down the road I change my mind I can slap one in there.

I don't intend to use the caching as I don't need the space....I can only half fill a 60gb SSD ,so I don't need to do anything other than configure it and put every installed app on it.

If I chose a computer to fit my needs I would be using an old pentium rig. Some folks just have expensive hobbies...again I appreciate the concern

And that's exactly why I want it. I don't want a large SSD. I want to pair one of the cheap, upcoming 20GB SSDs with one of the drives I already have

Plus, I'll easily use the transcoding video feature. That will come in handy no matter what

Are you going fix the Quad SLI on M4E and WS Revolution?

You don't need a large SSD.

Just get a medium-sized one and put all your programs on it.

That'll leave only large files on the HDD.

And the 20GB SSD won't be able to do anything with those.

So, even though you'll be seeing higher benchmark numbers, you won't gain any higher performance.

I thought we agreed that Quad-CF is possible, Quad-Quadro is possible and Quad-SLi hasn't been confirmed.

Under those circumstances, I'd have to leave the list at that.

SLI isn't the same as Xfire or Quadro though, so just because you can Quad-CF that doesn't mean Nvidia will let you do so with their Geforce cards. If you think you can Quad-SLI but you haven't confirmed it yet, why would you officially list it as Quad-SLI compatible then? Anyways, great list. It sure makes it easier to compare mobos.

I'm just leaning more towards it being Quad-SLi compatible versus not.
I've seen people Quad-SLi on PCIe x1 slots.

And also, it would be confusing to say Quad-CF but only Dual-SLi.

I think that anyone who's going to buy four graphics cards should research the compatibility of such a rare setup.

But if anyone wants to do the honors, I'll change the list accordingly.

The only way I can think of it working is with the SLI Hack. But P67 has it locked down in the bios and it hasn't been hacked yet so getting Quad SLI to work doesn't seem possible yet. Why would Asus explicitly list it as Tri-SLI compatible if you could do Quad?

Also, I think the people who would be researching would be looking at something exactly like this thread which helps break it down so where else are they going to find out if Quad-SLI really works or not?

Right, but I don't have Quad-SLi, so all I can do is search for other threads.

All I can say is - if Quad-CF works, I don't see why Quad-SLi wouldn't. Why would nVidia limit you to three cards when AMD lets you buy four?
