or SB-E X79
I know the gtx 680/670 or 7970 etc don't really benefit from it, but the 690 is a dual GPU right? it might actually make a small difference
Im sure a 2500k/2600k or SB-E would be a great pairing with the GTX690.
I dont think PCI EX 3.0 makes a difference to any current cards unless you plan to 2 cards in 2 separate slots.
Even still it makes no difference.
x8 and x4, pci ex 3.0 make a small difference but x16 not really, even so its a tiny percentage of a difference from even an x8 x8 pci ex 2.0 config.
Point being i dont really think pci ex 3.0 or Ivy is needed to keep up with a GTX690.
Separate names with a comma.
