Default Re: ASUS Rampage II VS. P6T

Why dont you recommend the P6T ?


There arent that many to choose from atm for i7 builds. The only thing I could find better then the P6T was

EVGA 132-BL-E758-TR:
Newegg.ca - EVGA 132-BL-E758-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

I was just kind of set on ASUS because they've been around so long, and they have alot of tiny features i like.

Performance wize, there isnt much difference is there?


Thanks

THe P6T is working fine for me. No probs or issues at all. As for performance and overclocking its supposed to be on par with the EVGA board.

the only real difference i can see is if u ran a 3rd video card. The evga board supports a 3rd card in x8 mode, while the asus board supports a 3rd card only at 4x.

Is it worth an extra 30 bux? I think by the time i need 3 video cards, ill need a new mobo too :P

I think just for expansion capability, the P6T is a better choice then the Rampage 2 (having more room).

its soo hard to pick hahaha

He's talking about how certain X58 boards have their third PCI-E slot at either x4 or x8 bandwith, opposed to the full x16 like the first two PCI-E slots.

Naturally the x8 will be better, but the question is are you ever going to add in a third graphics card? If you don't see yourself doing that, then go for the P6T.

And how much does this lower bandwidth affect the card? Are there any boards with 3 x16 slots?

take a look at this board, slightly cheaper and overclocks just as well if not better.
