Yes, its just not worth the money for the redundant card slot instead of the pci-e 1x and 4x slots you get with the non sli mobos.

pci-e 1x and 4x peripherals are just coming out of the woodwork :tazz:


I dont understand why you would use that as a plus for a new motherboard?

Cause the new physx cards are supposed to be pci-ex4 and those things are friggin phenomenal. 10 000 physics objects in a game to a million and a drop in cpu load what more could you ask for. Also it is a plus for updgradability like you said they are coming out of the woodwork.

The x2s, they are pretty good but i wouldnt get one now i would wait till the price goes down and there is more support and get something above a 4800+ . Or get a 4800+ now but i dont think you will eb able to afford one so just stick with a san diego for now. pci-e x4 is the slots they are going to use for newer cards that need the speed from the pci-e they are like pci pretty much they arent for anything specific like the pci-e x16 slot.

Clawhammer is an older core and therefore less stable. San diego is its equivalent.

Well i dont know how much you can afford you never actually told us your budget you just gave us a list of parts. If you cant you picked a 3500+ venice which is still fast and since you picked it then i assume you can afford it.

Why you had allready picked the best 6800GT on the market. Also one of the best performers in its price range.
