I'm looking at picking up a EVGA Z68 SLI Micro Motherboard (120-SB-E682-KR) ($120) for my new rig, plus na evga GTX 480 ($200), that way I have the option for SLI down the road.
The board is advertised as supporting SLI, but can't any motherboard support SLI with a bridge? I was reading on an Nvidia site that mobos that have the SLI stamp have been optimized for SLI, but I have reason to believe its all marketing jargon and hype.
Does anyone know if Evga mobos are anygood? has anyone had any issues with them? I have heard Asus and Gigabyte make good mobos.
Why don't you buy mobos featuring Intel's New Z77 chipset.
I think that most of them are cheaper than Z68 boards(as some people say; I haven't checked so far; although I have an ASUS Maximus5Gene).
If you're into overclocking and that sort then maybe you should go for the Sabertooth Z77 ASUS, but beware of the bare looks....
