Which do you recommend? I'm of a mind to buy the "True" 3-way SLI, myself.

(EDIT: The one with the oh-so-horrible NF200. )

(EDIT Number Two: Wooo. I think I need caffeine. Or maybe it's jet lag. I can't seem to wrap my mind around this whole deal right now. The 760-A1 is non-nf200, correct? What is the 760?

Source of my frustrations:
Newegg.com - EVGA,classified

Now Im going to go add an energy drink to my day, see if that works.)

(.........edit 3: Reaaaaallly didn't mean to try and hijack this thread. I was rushing myself and wasn't paying attention to what I was doing. Please don't kill me? )
Calm down, catch your breath, and chill.

Newegg.com - EVGA 141-BL-E760 LGA 1366 Intel X58 3X SLI Classified Extended ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

That one above is the one WITHOUT the NF200 Lane Splitter chip

Newegg.com - EVGA 141-BL-E759-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SLI Classified ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

This one above is the one WITH the NF200 Lane Splitter chip.

Be mindful, the NF200 chip is *estimated* to bring a slight(2-3%) performance hit due to added latency of the splitter. Personally? I'd recommend the non-NF200 motherboard, but frankly the diffrence is so slight, that if I flipped a coin to decide which one I ultimately ended up with, I wouldn't lose any sleep either way. (I still recommend the non-nf200 version thou )
