I am heavily leaning toward ending with 2 EVGA GTX 460 1GB's in SLI config as a GPU setup in a new PC.
Given this- do you think it makes more sense for me to go with a P55 SLI board, or try to find a decent AMD SLI board?
I hate that LGA 1156 is being put down, but realistically- a decent i5-750 setup may last long enough to skip the 1155 socket altogether, and it sounds like a marginal step up anyways....
So, the ever present, should I go with AMD for such a setup- or stick to the i5-750? I'm leaning toward Intel atm, but if I can get a good AMD SLI board recommended for around the same price as the P55 setup I'll jump. Problem atm is that all of the AMD SLI boards I'm seeing are outpricing their P55 counterparts, which is no good for saving $$ (which is the whole reason to consider an AMD anyways, when it is pretty universal that i5-750 is at least slightly better than x4 955 or Thuban)
nVidia chipsets have always been a little spotty with AMD CPUs, if you want SLI options i definitely suggest the LGA 1156 option with an i5 760. Two GTX 460s will do better than a GTX 480 for less, but also leaves you no upgrade options for better graphics performance in the future.
