Hi to all,
Before putting up the first question, some introduction.
I am ordering for a CPU for gaming, actually placed order for proc.- i5-760.
I asked for P7-P55D PRO (suited my budget).
But it is not available. SO i checked for some more Boards.
1. Biostar T5XE (8X 8X SLI)- 134 $
2. MSI P55 GD65 (8X 8X SLI) - 160 $
3. ASUS P7P55D-E PRO (8X 8X SLI) - 190 $ (All prices from Newegg)
I need SLI on the board so that i cud use it fot Nvidia 3D kit.
Out of these boards, i saw only ASUS board claiming to support Intel turbo boost (in newegg.com).
Now the main question---
Does Turbo boost really make a difference on gaming part?? I read somewhere that TB helps in Hyperthreading applications. So what is the answer????
Shud i go for cheapest iostar T5XE without TB support or throw big bucks on others for Boost???? ( by today i want to place order for board also)
Thanx in advance....

Don't bother with turbo boost if you plan on overclocking the CPU.. All those boards are good with Asus being the best of them..
