SLI - Worth it?
i need some opinions, i am thinking of buying a new board, and not sure if i should run SLI. Intel boards that supports Crossfire cost too much, and the only SLI board thats cheap at microcenter is the 680i LT SLI, which is over a year old since it was released, but it costs $100. I have an 8800GT and since they are pretty cheap, i think i might pick another one of these up maybe in november or december and SLI if i got an SLI board.
So when buying a new board, should i just buy a board that will satisfy my hardware, and have one thats has like PCI-E 2.0 and one that is more future proof? or should i go with one that supports PCI-E 1.1, pretty outdated, and able to run SLI.
I dont know if i want to have SLI or not, though it would be nice to have the option opened. I want to have an gaming computer build.
Thanks for your opinions
