Re: upgrading to conroe.. have a few questions
What makes it better?
I'm looking at the specs.. it has 2 pci-e x16 slots, but one of them only runs at x4. I'm thinking about like a year from now when 8800GTX prices are going to drop down and I'm going to want another one. I may want true dual x16 support, and it looks like only 680i and whatever intel's high priced equivalent offers that.
do you think it's worth it to spend almost 200$ on a motherboard so I could go SLI?
