He is correct. There were reports of problems with some of the eVGA boards. I may have gotten lucky. I have not had any problems with mine so far. I have fans pulling outside air over the hard drives and I am not running RAID. eVGA says that a BIOS upgrade should fix the problems.There are reports that the EVGA board corrupts SATA drives and has issues with SATA raid arrays, I have not seen reports of problems on the Asus board.
My understanding was that both Nvidia and eVGA feel that the data corruption problems were fixed a month ago with a BIOS update. That's based on this article/interview over on HardOCP: NVIDIA nForce 680i SolutionsAlthough I am quite satisfied with mine, I would suggest that anyone interested in a 680i board avoid eVGA for awhile.
The 590i used to be the top Nvidia solution but now its the step down from the 680i and barely better than the 650i.yea thats why im asking for help.. so i could work out the best mobo according to performance to cost ratio..
(im only going for a ASUS mobo), see the problem is - 680i is the most expensive, second is the 590i, third is the 975x, and the lowest is the 650i
if i buy the 590i because its capable of sli (which i dont need now, but maybe in the future) and its expensive than the 975x, and if the 590i is close enough to be at a performance with the 975x, then 590i would be what i prefer.. as its feature loaded and has sli.. but it maybe be vise-versa!.. i may go for the 975x because it is 1st of all cheaper, and maybe has a big difference in performance than the 590, since it may not be close enough in performance with the 975x, since the 680i is at competition with 975x, which would make the 975x better!
but then i may go for the 650i as it is the cheapest, and is in the 6series where as 509i is expensive and is in the 5series, i will go for the 650i if it is close enough with performance with the 975x.. and the 650i would be my best overall choice..
you see where im going with this..lol. I really cant make a choice because i dont know the performance of chipsets to compare with the prices that i have , to get the best price to performance ratio..
i really need your help..
Whan overclocking the Core2Duo the 965 chipset is able to achieve higher FSB speeds which means higher overclocks. The 975 chipsets are newer and have more features SATA ports, firewire, digital voltage regulators, etc..i know that the southbridge of the P965 is better than that of the 975 because of the amount of features, but im asking performance wise how is the P965 better than the P975 and in what way (im mean intel has stated the 965 as a highend mainstream, and the 975 as the performance?
how is the stock e6300 c2d in performance compared to amd am2 x2's? almost all c2d out perform x2's so where do u think the 6300 would fall.. wud b better than 4600+ or 4400+?
