Engineered For The Enthusiast

Extreme FSB speeds plus support for the latest 45nm Intel Core 2 platform


Extreme DDR2 speeds with support for up to 1200MHz SLI-Ready memory


Three 16x PCI Express 2.0 slots for unmatched 3-way SLI performance



but you can only triple sli GTX and ultra's...

perdy looking board though


FROM THE 780i XFX REVIEW POSTED IN THIS FORUM...

So effectively nForce 780i now has three PCIe x16 slots bringing you the maximum bandwidth available. Two are PCIe 2.0 and connected to the SPP, the third (middle slot) is PCIe 1.0 and is being pulled from the MCP Southbridge).

dude what a bunch of mother****in ****suckers.
so, if you bought a 680i mobo, you can trade it up for a new one that will support the new quadcore that it was supposed to support in the first place.
but, if you bought a 590 mobo, that was supposed to support the new quad from AMD...what do you get? a generic ****in bull**** email and your **** in your hand.
im really bitter at this moment.
and i am really despising EVGA.
