I'm looking at getting either the Gigabyte GA-N680SLI-DQ6 or eVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR. I can get them for both the same price, each one from different dealers. Just wondering what one would be the better to go with? I've heard about eVGA being really, really good but I would love more feedback on this. :)

:shadedshu Look up 'trolling' (not saying anymore about it...)





Between the two? Go with the DQ6, has more copper than the evga, and looks nicer

The only bad thing I've heard about giga is they lag a LITTLE (couple months?) on BIOS updates


Oh and if its 2 different shops - pick the shop with the better warranty policy :p

your allowed to voice your opinion but lets be honest, what you said was irrelevant to Refuse's question about the gigabyte or evga mobo.

i have the gigabyte so i will say the gigabyte. However, don't buy the board just because it costs the most and has alot features...Figure out what you REALLY want out of your computer.
