i wasnt talking about benchmarks and other things from so called "our world". im talking about more pro use for it, as a true workstation for some1. also plx is way superior to that chip... its just nvidia that wants that chip on board from time to time, and its selling sli license (while amd is giving crossfire for free LOL) and wrong choice for chipset. should be taken one that can provide video output.

If you're using what's in your sig rig, don't bother with the WS. The main reason why I went with it is because I currently have 3 PCIe cards and i'm planning on adding another GPU in the near future. Possibly a PCIe SSD card, which would make the total to 5 cards. Basically only buy the WS if you are planning on a bunch of PCIe cards.


Btw, it seems to be on par with the rest of the high end motherboards when it comes to overclocking.

That's exactly what I am thinking. Originally I planned to go for P67 Sabertooth, but after learning that adding a PCIE 4x revo drive in the 2nd PCIE 16 slot will half the bandwidth of my video card, I started to look for other options and I chose WS.

I guess more PCIE slots is more future proof since PCI is fading out slowly.

If your only doing 1 pcie and 1 gpu go with something cheaper. Once you start planning to use 3+ slots then look into a mobo with NF200.

From my understanding is that 16x 16x with NF200 can be worse then 8x 8x without the NF200. Once you go toward Tri Sli or 3 cards, that's when the NF200 starts to give u benefits.

I actually tested my GTX 580 in 4x and it showed major decreases but my 5770 and GTS 450 both didn't get as much decrease. I was getting 7000 ppd with 4x folding on my 450 while when in 16x it gets 7500-8500 ppd

You have to remember though that this is meant to be a workstation board, and has many workstation like features to it. It isn't really meant to be a gamers board.

To answer you question though, boards with the nf200 chip are not worth it unless you plan on using tri-sli.
