Default Re: From what would I benefit more?

A 790i has support for DDR3 and PCIe 2.0, even if your not going to be using SLI it might be worth it to get that board since it supports both of the features you want...

Edit: I just realized it only has 2 PCI slots though, but is there any reason you need a network card, the mobo has built in gigabit ethernet ports...

If you install your graphics card in the top PCI-E slot of this mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136046 Your dual slot card will only cover the PCI-E X1 slot and not any of the PCI slots.

WOW im going CRAZY HERE!

The PCI-E X4 slot is almost definitely the bottom PCI-E slot. Where did I say it was the top one?

How sure are u about that? Because for some reason I was convinced it was the top one? I was trying to search for a pic with labeled pci's, but was unable to find. But if what u say is true, that changes everything. Do u know where I can confirm this?

Taken from DFI's site:
Quote:
2 PCI Express (2.0) x16 slots (PCIE 1 and PCIE 3)
- 2-way CrossFire at x16/x16 bandwidth
- 2-way CrossFire + Physics at x16/x16/x4 bandwidth
1 PCI Express x4 slot (PCIE 4)
I'll look for some others like the DFI.

That mobo is Crossfire only. You will need an Nvidia chipset if you want to do SLI.
Here is a couple of great P35 boards that meets all your requirements: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127030
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...el+Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136043
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...el+Motherboard

No 680i/780i/790i meets your requirements.

Worshipme dude u have no idea how much u helping me man, thank you.

LoL wow one bad new after another. Well I'm not really stressing the SLI/Cross fire part because I will be getting only 1 Vid card anyways, and by the time I'm ready for an upgrade Nahelm will be here which will require new Socket anyways.

So out of this 4 MOBO"S what would u say is the best one? Money not a problem.

DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...35C-DS3R%2bLGA
GIGABYTE GA-EP35C-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX (This one has support for DDR2 & DDR3. Memory Standard DDR3 1333 / DDR2 1066"

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128086
