  1. if they are the same price I would probably take the abit but neither is troublefree yet.
    P5N-E SLI is fine for what it is - a relatively cheap mobo.
    & imo the AB9 QuadGT is a better high-end 965 than the Commando.
  2. eVGA T1
  3. If you want good features and overclocking then get the A1. The Abit 680i is about the same as Evga first 680i motherboard. A1 version has refined overclocking features and stability.

    T1 -vs- A1

    To clear things up for everyone asking how you can tell the difference with the EVGA 680i SLI boards with the fix for the Intel Quad Core CPU; EVGA will be doing a small change to its part number for this particular SKU.

    EVGA will modify the last digit of its part number to reflect this change

    122-CK-NF68-AR will be replaced with 122-CK-NF68-A1
    122-CK-NF68-TR will be replaced with 122-CK-NF68-T1

    The AR/A1 is the full retail box, includes all cables and brackets and comes with a lifetime warranty upon registration.
    The TR/TR is the lite version, does not include all brackets, manual comes on CD, has only the essential cables and comes with a 2 year warranty.

    AR/A1 - packing list:
    I/O shield
    NB fan
    SLI bridge
    Driver CD
    USB bracket
    Firewire bracket
    Serial port bracket
    6 SATA data cables
    3 SATA power cables
    IDE data cable
    Floppy data cable
    RAID floppy driver disk

    TR/T1 - packing list:
    I/O shield
    NB fan
    SLI bridge
    Driver CD
    2 SATA data cables
    1 SATA power cable
    IDE data cable
    Floppy data cable

    MEMORY MODULE SUPPORT: Note all supported rams are on the lists, this are just some that are tested to run with the 680i board and confirmed for compatibility and stability.

    Evga has better warranty as it offers the AR (older) and A1 (newer) model a lifetime warranty after registration. The T1 is the less feature motherboard. TR models has 2 year warranty. I don't know much about Abit warranty, so no doubt my favor is on Evga A1 680i.

    And lastly some important facts and commonly asked questions about the Evga 680i platform. Click Here
  4. I would go with the Evga. They just revisioned those boards for better Quad overclocking. Also their support is Bar-None.

    Here is the link for the Board Revisions: http://www.evga.com/community/messageboard/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=28369
  5. My vote goes to ABIT. Also agree wioth buff if you are not going to SLI the quadroGT is the better MB (also costs half the price here) 400$ vs 200$
  6. thank u for answering :wink:

    but am in sweden and i bought evga 680i ar from 2 dys applied for a replacement 4 a1 and they said no because I live in Sweden
    no lifetime warranty in se
    so I've started an application to return the product and get

    (abit 680i) or (abit ab9 pro) or (asus 650i) or (asus com....)or (msi 650)

    my system e4300 am plenning to oc at lest to 3200 ghz

  7. I would stay away from the nvidia solutions if you are not going to SLI. Just check the recent review on toms.

    The AB( is a good board but make sure to update the bios. Look for the quadroGT if it is available.

    If it is not a secret how much do those 680 boards cost in Sweden?
  8. the problem is the cost is crazy in Sweden for example the difference between

    abit quadroGT and abit 680i or evga 680i is 600kr =70 dollar

    and Asus P5N32-E SLI, nForce-680i cheaper 10 dollar than abit quadroGT

    asus 650i or abit 650 Fatal1ty or msi 650 cheaper than ds3 rv3

    AquadroGT cheaper 20 dollar than BIT AW9D-MAX

    The rewievs on the internet are making it even worse, so I'm having a

    hard time deciding, so I need advice not including life time warranty,

    price etc because it's different in Sweden. And about SLI, I'm not thinking

    about it in the near future, but it's nice to have the option. The important

    for me now is stabile, very fast and 100% overclocking board. And that it

    works with all of my hardware. By the way thank you all of you guys, I'm

    amazed how fast you answered.
  9. id say go with the evga
  10. Man I think the 680i are overpriced here!!!

    $400 per 680 vs $200 something for a quadro GT
    Stay away from the 650i (read the review)

    I think it all comes down to what is more important to you.

    Overclocking - Go for the quadro GT
    Features - go for the 680i
    SLI - go for the 680i

    My personal preference is ABIT (Since 1999 I've been using only abit and they have those Japanese caps) but that is because of habit more than anything else. Most good MBs will have great overclockability today (have to admit that the QuadoGT offers the best IMHO). So it mainly comes down to which brand do you prefer and what extra goodies do you get with the package.
