ACCORDING TO BFG AND NVIDIA "NVIDIA LinkBoost™ Technology
NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI MCP automatically increases bandwidth when select BFG GeForce® graphics cards are detected." I think thats when i started to get bfg also because it has better cards than evga and xfx but the only thin i like about xfx is the card graphics and i hate the billions of ridiculous names it gives its cards. So according to the manufacturers BFG is the card you should be using if your going to game. nuff said

Why not go with DDR 800 ram? Also, if you have the money and your a big time overclocker I'd go with this motherboard.

i still dont believe that bfg are the best for gamers.
it sounds like a marketting scheme to me and im not buying into it.

honestly i would stick with well known motherboard brands like ASUS, Abit, MSI, etc..

although reading the reviews about the eVga board it is really tempting

why the F*** is the watercooled 8800GTX almost $900, the only good thing is that is in stock but you have to wait like 8-10 days for them to make it, also i have not been able to find the BFG Nforce680iSLI mobo if anyone has found it can you post link here
