Between those two,the classified is much better quality. But no, you don't need something so expensive if you're not going to be using multiple graphics cards.

The asus p6t delux is cheaper and a great buy.

Thanks guys I will get the ASUS P6T Deluxe V2, as I can't find a P6T Deluxe on newegg, I only found a Deluxe V2.

Also, Riou : I was looking at that board and WOW, the only thing stopping me is that I need my computer finished yesterday pretty much.
Oh well, it will be a little better than my current HP m770n. LOL

Really, you have both, and have done extensive stability testing on both? Because I do, and this statement is untrue to say the least. I will agree that neither is necessary, though.

Thanks guys for all the help Sorry I didnt respond faster, but I was busy offline volunteering at my railroad museum. Anyways I was going to get the P6T V2, but then Newegg decided to go ahead and accept my Gigabyte X58A-UD3R that I had bought from them originally (It did not work.). I was going to get the V2, but my dad said to just wait till I get the replacment mobo in the mail. Oh well,


Is the Gigabyte X58A-UD3R any good?

Don't get such expensive Motherboards when you will only be using an H50. Get The Classified if you want extreme Overclocks afforded by water cooling or LN2.

I got the P6TD, which is just the third update to the P6T Deluxe boards, and got it with a nice combo deal with ym 930. Great Deal, great board. This board is nice, heavy, and made of excellent components. But just because it's a classified, don't think it wont overclock well. This board reaches a 200 BLCK easily, without additions to voltages. The huge heatsinks keep the temps down pretty good too. Also, I really like the express gate utility.

Let me jump on the wagon since i am in a similar situation.

I am also wanting to buy a 3-WAY SLI Classified E760.

However i still not that sure about the Classified pipeline specs.

Lets say i will have:
1 - GTX 480 (GPU1)
2 - GTX 295 (GPU2)
3 - GTX 260 (GPU3) - for physX

So:
GPU1 16x + GPU2 16x= 32pipelines, right?

What if i add the GTX260?
Will it downclock the second GPU2 and GPU3 to 8x?

is the latest E760 mobo a REAL 3WAY SLI?
what about if all gpus were GTX295? or 1 GTX480 and two GTX 295?
