I was giong to buy myself an EVGA 750iFTW from overclockers.co.uk for £100, cause my motherboard's sound is starting to feck up pretty bad. So I go onto the page and *Bing* The product is unavailable. FFFFFFFUUUUUUU...

So I think Instead I'll save up and get an XFX 780i from amazon for £125.

But now I'm sorta torn between a few motherboards, I'm only going to be setting up dual SLI cause thats all 9600GT's support.

So..

780i

750i

680i

650i

Pretty sure you can find them all on amazon yourselves, if you need to.

So what, I mean purely out of personal experience would you lot say I should get?

(Best performance:cash ratio.. I'm money conscious)

I would say 750i. I am quite disappointed after spending near $300 after tax on my 780i board to find it basically the same as my old 650i board. I don't seem to hear any negatives about the 750i though, as it is basically 780i only cheaper and not such a fancy cooling setup.

Personally I am not an XFX fan. I think that ASUS, Gigabyte, DFI, AsRock are the way to go. As far ast the numbers. Those are Graphic configuration. The one that you were looking on amazon was a XFX Triple Sli Board. That is an awesome combo but if your money conscience and you want to save, go with the Dual or single PCIe boards. Also if money is your concideration you could get the PHenom II 940 that can clock to 3.6 easy and the rosewill Z5 cooler. An Asus M3A79 board and some 1066 memory. Grab a couple of 4570s and put them in Xfire and save a lot on upgrades later on.

As you can see in my build I have everything already decided and set out, Just the motherboard to choose. Asus manufacture the 750i as the P5N, so I'll consider getting on to one of those. I will be on dual SLI with 2 9600GT, 4GB OCZ Reaper, and an intel E8400 CPU.

Kinda useless to me since I can't buy one.. I emailed them and they say they have no plans on restocking it atm.

Ill get Asus's one, the P5N-Deluxe. Thanks for your help.
