But I'm not sure how fast the SLI would run, because it says one is x16 and the other is x4. I'm guessing SLI would run x4 together? I'm just not sure.
The DS3P doesnt support SLI, only CrossFire.

Oh, he asked for a P35 that's comparable to the MSI P6N Plat., and I wasn't aware that the DS3P version, only supported Crossfire. He wanted a P35 that supported SLI, I think.

thanks b1gapl, i think for now im just gonna go with the p6n plat, and then upgrade once the 32nm chips come out....

On another note, theres alot of talk about how PCs dont really utilize multicore cpus, but what we all forget sometimes is that were not gaming ALL the time, and that, essentially the more cores the better (mainly) and were always having numerous numbers of processes going on in the background which a quadcore would definately help with.

Intel Chipsets don't normally support SLI. Your going to have to wait for the new Nvid chipset.

If I remember correctly, didn't Intel recently get a license for SLI, from Nvidia?
