AMD FX-8350 powering GTX 780 SLI vs GTX 980 SLI at 2560x1440
Wednesday, 01 October 2014 16:05
Tweaktown has compared AMD's 8350 versus Intel's 4930K with 780 and 980 SLI.
So, the AMD setup is $319 and the Intel setup is $1052 - this makes the Intel setup 329% more expensive. Yes, over 300% more expensive. For 300% more cost, we're not getting more than around 10-20% more performance. This is where you really have to think about the money you're spending. Sure, you might not have gone for two GeForce GTX 980s in SLI, and opted for the Intel processor, spending an additional $600+ on the Intel setup. But why? Read more at
This sort of sums up why I'm using FX 6300s at Game Republik until I have reason to spend cash elsewhere.

Gigabyte K8N51PVMT-9 Review
Wednesday, 15 February 2006 13:44
Digit Life has
the Gigabyte K8N51PVMT-9. We tested it out here.
You can purchase it
for as low as $70.
On the whole, Gigabyte K8N51PVMT-9 qualifies for its mission and is worthy of being a base for inexpensive home as well as functional office PC as well as HTPC. In particular, BIOS Setup contains an option to choose a TV-set (connected to the integrated TV-Out) as a default monitor. You can use a model with HDTV support, video decoding in this format is supported on the hardware level. Thought-out set of integrated controllers provides everything necessary for the above mentioned tasks, but the motherboard is not overpriced (its bundle is not swollen, as it is usually the case with top solutions). However, K8N51PVMT-9 can offer nothing to overclockers, so this group of customers is excluded from the target audience of the new Gigabyte product.
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI Review
Friday, 10 February 2006 17:02
Tech Report has
MSI's K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI. We reviewed it here
back in April of last year.
With much of the high-end motherboard market riding the original nForce4 SLI, MSI's K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI looks right at home. MSI's spin on the nForce4 SLI is unique, though. Rather than settling for the nForce4 SLI chipset's pedestrian AC'97 audio implementation, MSI has endowed the K8N Neo4 with a high-definition audio chip from Creative. Can high-def audio help the K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI rise above the slew of nForce4 SLI boards out there? Read on to find out.
Gigabyte GA-K8N51PVMT-9 Review
Wednesday, 08 February 2006 02:46
the Gigabyte GA-K8N51PVMT-9. We reviewed this board here.
You can now pick it up here
So basically what it boils down to is that this board is perfect for the media center, requiring no add-in components to get a system running. Gaming media center devices, however, will require an add-in video card for running anything other than old standbys like Unreal Tournament 2004 or Warcraft III. The GeForce 6150 is probably the fastest desktop integrated video out there, but it's not the holy grail of computer graphics. Gamers will just have to continue dealing with large, expensive, hot, and loud add-in cards for the time being.
EPoX 8NPA SLI Review
Monday, 06 February 2006 03:15
the Epox 8NPA SLI Socket 754 motherboard. We reviewed this board here.
You can pick it up here
for as low as $85.
Overall the EPoX 8NPA SLI is lacking features like additional RAID controllers, twin Gigabit LAN and Firewire, but in all honesty, if you want all this and can afford it, a 3000+ AMD Athlon 64 processor based on the 939 package is more in your field of view but for budget SLI with the cheaper Sempron, you cannot go past the EPoX 8NPA SLI motherboard.
Foxconn WinFast 6150K8MA-8EKRS Review
Friday, 03 February 2006 13:47
Viper Lair has
the Foxconn WinFast 6150K8MA-8EKRS. We reviewed it here.
We're not going to list the 6150 as a "con" since we feel that anyone interested in this board will understand the GPU's gaming limitations. Armed with a discreet video solution, the WinFast 6150K8MA-8EKRS proved to be quite a performer, near the levels of the nForce 4 Ultra and SLI (minus a second PEG NVIDIA card). If the FlexATX SFF PCs aren't for you, but you still want something compact, this Foxconn board is worth a look.
