GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD5-B3 vs ASUS P6X58D-E

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am building a new computer, I can't decide weather to go with the P6X58D-E, with a i7 960, or the GA-P67A-UD5-B3, with a i7 2600. I know the i7 2600 is a better CPU but, with the GA-P67A-UD5-B3 the PCI-E slots don't run in duel 16x and the P6X58D-E PCI-E slots do. So with two 6970s running in CF am I going to get a performance hit going from the P6X58D-E to the GA-P67A-UD5-B3.

If you were going SB, grab the 2600K. It lets you overclock as you please.

And regarding the PCI-E slots, you will see no difference in performance what so ever (unless you are benchmarking and trying to squeeze every little point you can).

even at 8x/8x SB is MUCH better scoring at 3D, compared to X58 at 16x/16x. SB's integrated PCI-E controller is very very good.
