Will try to keep this as short as possible wasnt sure whether to post in cpu section though. Basically got my system 2 years ago made of a p5e deluxe motherboard and a core 2 quad 6700 (2.66ghz) cpu running a 4870x2. I basically have the option to swap my p5e deluxe for a 780i motherboard and swap my 4870x2 for a gtx470. Question is, would running GTX 470 sli be affected much by the q6700 cpu?

Thanks for the quick reply, will it be very badly though? I suppose I can save up for an x58 and i7

I got a xfx 780i, it is not all that great i/o wise. Nvidia chipsets have always been slower than what Intel had to offer. So just overclock on what you have and run the sli hack. Then you are set. For 775 to really worth with modern cards you really need to push those clocks higher.

Would the sli hack work on these modern cards though?

Yes it will, all it is does is trick the drivers into thinking that it is a sli certified board. It works as it would on a classic sli enabled board on boot up.
