With your sig rig and no plans to upgrade to SLI and other PCIe slots, then my answer is no, do not upgrade. If you plan on upgrading to multi (3+) PCIe slots then I would say yes upgrade. Overclocking ability and everything else should be similar to each other.

i want SLI at some point. looking at the ws rev mobo pics just noticed no PCI slots (dont care, i am using none). also, 3 instead of a single PCIex1, this is relevant to my multi tv-tuner interests.

hoping they let me advance rma and pay the difference

Not so good when the differences are basically nothing between P8P67 series? Dude those are all single GPU setups and the differences in those benchmarks are minimal between P8P67 boards. It could easily change with more benchmarks ran. WS shines with multiple cards in config whereas the Deluxe runs at 8x 4x 4x. The WS would run in 16x 8x 8x.

You probably have a better change returning your board to the retailer and buying the next board separately. If you're thinking of SLI, tv-tuner it's probably best to go with the WS Revolution since it's only a little more money. Gives you the option to add in a soundcard or whatever too.

I though adding in PCIe x1 cards would ruin the performance for the GPUs? That's what I was told since I have 2 GPUs and 2 PCIe x1 cards

No if the PCI-E 1x is off the PCH P67 then you are fine.

the PCH P67 has (8) times PCI-E 1x channels. On the GB boards the 1x port comes from the PCH.

Then I guess I spent an extra $30-50 for features I didn't really need... Maybe it's a good reason to get 3 GPUs
