my next project will be to try,blindly at that, the sli hack thingie on whatever amd mobowith 2 or more pci-e slots i can (very) cheaply get my hands on. ill be doing some benches and compare them(depending if ill have a proper factory enabled sli mobo to compare with) :)


to prove a point. the only unsure thing is the unknown success rate in the wild, thus cannot recommend it 100% . although with the newer one chances should be better than before.

If the total is around the same price, then go with the i5 760 & Asus P7P55D-E Pro, especially since your planning on going with 2 GTX460 1GB cards in SLI.
