Thanks for reading this thread: I need to buy a good MOBO that will improve my Sli gtx 460 performance as much as possible. CPU is i5 760. Any advice? Tri-Sli is possible and recomendable?

Can buy Asus and Gigabyte MOBO's

You can only 2 way SLi GTX 460's as there is only 1 SLi bridge per card.

Also of equal importance the i5-760 only has 16 PCI-Express lanes avalible for graphics and a single card uses 16 lanes doing two cards would be 8x/8x which is what i imagine you are doing. However moving to a 3 way SLi (Which you cant do with GTX 460's) (If there are P55 boards supporting it) would be 8x/4x/4x you would have no performance increase it would just be a waste of money.

Thanks for clarifying!
Is Sli 8x/8x lanes so much worse than in 16/16 pci express lanes?

The difference is negligible and only noticable when using 5970 level of gpu.

Which one should I choose:

Asus P7P55D PRO (its not the same as the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro)

or

Asus P7h57d-v Evo

If the E-PRO isn't available the Pro or Deluxe would be fine.
The difference is that they are 1st gen 1156 mobos and don't have usb3 or sata 6.
If you want those features go with the EVO.

Im afradi E - PRo isnt available.
I'll go with this one then: Asus P7P55D PRO

Thanks for the help!
