Looks like a good deal. But what is the difference between this version, and the two other, more expensive versions?

Comparison:

that i think is the 680i LT :

AnandTech: EVGA 680i LT SLI: NVIDIA's 680i Cost Reduced

it is supposed to be a budget version of the 680i

This isn't the LT.. The LT version says LT in the title one Newegg. Plus the pics on here have a black pcb and heatpipes which the LT doesn't have. No idea what's up with this, seems too good to be true. Price mistake? or maybe something to do with the new chipset releasing causing price drops but that doesn't really make sense since it would cause other prices to drop and no way would it drop by that much so soon...

Hmm... Pics show this being the SE version which I believe is new.. I'm betting this was a price mistake on Neweggs part..

The 680i is going down in price becuase people are starting to notice the 650i actually performs better in SLI with 8800GTX's even lol. Plus that it was half the price and barley had any extra features hah.

The 680i is a pretty good board now if it stays that price...still I would rather get a P5B-E.
