Im bout to build a my new pc after bout 2monthes of looking for almost every pieces and im still unsure if i sould be gettin 680i or 780i... is it me of the only difference is that 780i got some pci-e 2.0 ports? (which are pretty much useless for now right???)
im gettin E8400 and wanna SLI 2 gf9900 prolly
all that with 4x2gb ddr2 800 and prolly a soundcard (x-fi xtremgamer)
so what would be the benefit for me to take 780i instead of 680i??? 780i is still about 250$ which is pretty expensive for a motherboard!
ima use that comp for gaming mostly, online FPS, and also as a home theater (along with my samsung 226bw and logitech Z-5500
Tx a lot in advance for your opinions/expertise
The only 45nm support I've seen so far is the E8400, the other Dual cores might be supported but none of the Quads will and if you think you might want to upgrade to a Quad in the future you won't be able to with the 680i.
