    I try...

    I need to upgrade my motherboard to an eVGA nForce 780i SLI FTW so that I can overclock my CPU better. The Asus Striker Extreme did an awesome job at overclocking my original Core 2 Duo E6600 but there's some manufacturers errors that prevent it from overclocking quads very well.

    I'm going to save up some money and get the new motherboard at the same time that I get my new modular PSU. Most likely an ABS Tagan BZ 800 Watt...

    I was thinking about getting the eVGA nForce 750i but wondering if there are other better ones out there.....

    I need ADVICE! :)

    I personally wouldn't go with the 750i series. Depending on what you want to do I'd get the 780i or 780i FTW edition. The 780i is a rock solid motherboard, and the FTW edition just adds a slew of quality features for overclocking and increased performance.

    @ Abiosis:

    Looking at the internals of that XPS makes my head hurt... It looks so unorganized and cluttered. No wonder it requires all those fans for decent airflow! lmao!

    Freelancer,

    I am not going to be overclocking or doing anything really involved.

    I am comparing the two 750i's right now. For $25 the FTW model looks way better

    I have the EVGA 750i FTW and it is a fairly good board but it does lack some features and has some issues that you might want to know about.

    1. It runs very hot

    2. You need to use the chipset fan which directs hot air directly on to the back of your GFX card.

    3. The fan it very noisy and will be the noisiest part of your entire PC, just to cool your chipset

    4. It only has 4 SATA ports and they are all angled towards the front panel.

    5. Don't use the supplied SATA cables as they do not fit correctly and will result in breakage of the SATA port, (I have 2 that are broken already, but I was able to repair them with supper glue )

    6. There is only one internal USB header, so you will only be able to use it for the front panel.


    On the other hand, I have had a very stable computer and and it suits my need for the time being, some good points are.

    1. Overclocks very well, (I have my E8500 @ 4.5Ghz)

    2. Works well with Windows 7, (No driver issues and very stable)

    3. Can run SLI at full x16 speed with both cards, although I have not personaly been able to test this yet.

    4. fairly good value for money

    5. If you live in the US you will have the stepup option if you want to upgrade, (Unfortunately I live in Australia and don't have that option).

    6. Supports all Intel CPU's aside from the i7's

    7. You can Reset the CMOS with a button instead of having to remove batteries or changing jumpers, located at the bottom.

    8. All solid capacitors, for better stability and durability.

    I'm sure ther is more but that's all I can think of ATM, good luck deciding

    ^ hmmm...

    a question then:

    780i - Total: $179.99
    750i - Total: $159.99

    So for $20 up front I should go with the 780i correct?
    I hate rebates anyways... Ends up being a $50 difference after rebates.... but they take FOREVER and I hate them
