I remember paying $300+ for a MSI K8N NF3 Platinum back in the day, never mind the $300+ for a 3200+ CPU.

IIRC I was running a 3100 Sempron on one of those and later moved up to a 3700+. Do you remember if that was the 7060? If so, it's the only board I've ever killed with a bios update. :)

You should get 3 780TI's, as not sure if you will be able to beat your benches with tri 680 classifieds.

Nah.....I think 2 of these Ti's would come pretty close to 3 of my 680's ;)

I can confirm that I beat my Benches with 2 780Ti's vs Tri SLi 680 Classy's ;) ....I can honestly say that 3 780Ti's would really be like flushing $$$ down the toilet with only a single 1440P monitor !!

....The Benching would be fun though...but the novelty would wear off quick ;)

...Sorry Mods, forgot about the multi Quote option !!
