E6600 Evga nForce 680i SLI Evga 8800GTX Replace my, PD 940 @ 4.0GHz/16*250MHz FSB with a TT Big Typhoon P5N32-SLI (worthless mobo that can't post after 4.1GHz) 2x 7800GTX SLI @ 470/1300 Total price was $1277.20 Worth it? I could cancel the order now and change it. More about : upgrading aging Cartman0123 November 9, 2006 12:15:13 AM I hate these posts where someone flexes their $ and forgets their brain. Are you just wanting us to stroke your ego? Shut up. Name one game you weren't able to play with those 7800GTX's in SLI! :roll: WR November 9, 2006 4:43:53 AM The tremendous power savings are worth quite something on their own. E6600 with 680i should overclock into the top range of C2D performance, limited only by your cooling. And $1277 isn't much at all to accomplish this. You could even make a nice chunk back selling the old components. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
