    That's nothing ... and btw, your fx-53 is identified as a s940 (check cpu-z) not a s939.

    I *think* that Alienware is making something to allow this, altho I'm not sure if ATi will "offically" approve of it. Altho ATi might make SLI cards....

    Might make them? That would be stupid for ATI to just give the crown back to Nvidia without coming out with a SLI verison of there cards. Ofcourse isint SLI Nvidia's tech that they bought off of 3dfx?

    yep. Thats where SLI was first used I believe. In the Voodoo 2 (?) cards. They used dual PCI slots and where able to ....what was it something like run a game at 1024x768 on high detail settings. those were the dark ages. lol

    The new nVidia SLI is a different implementation that 3dfx Voodoo2 was.
    nVidia´s SLI takes in account that nowadays since it´s the GPU who takes care of the geometry and shading, doing line interleaving like 3dfx isn´t going to work properly. So it splits the work according to the load the scene will put on the gpu´s, it can be like 20% to one, and 80% to the other one.

    Or that with BH5 and K8NSNXP-939 LDT 3X , ideal for smalls 939.
    i can't try higher multis because i'm aircooled here.

    Well i didn't wanna have to upgrade atm due to me wanting to wait out the dual pci-e boards for sli. chilly1 is customizing a phase change for me so i think i'll go ahead and upgrade from my it7 max 2 p4 1.8a@2.7 (ya ya it's oooold) to a MSI Neo2 plat for now an then when sli hits i can simply upgrade the board instead of having to get a new cpu as well. NF4 is due out very soon and i'd like to upgrade to one of those when they hit. Any suggestions on which s939 cpu to get? I've seen a ton of posts but i still can't make up my mind. I know i can get a 3000+ from fry's for about $180 and that includes an msi board as well but not the neo2. I'd love to drop some cash on an fx-53 but damn those are pricey

    On a side note i have 4 sticks of bh-5 all 256 modules and from what it seems they run well in this board.

    Maybe you could get a good deal in a couple of days on an fx-53 ... a few people here will be letting their "old" fx-53's for an fx-55

    There also arent any really good 939 chips (other than the winchesters and the FXs) that really blow you away right out of the box.

    The 3500+ sucked ( 2.6 a challenge, C'MON)

    The 3800+ was too expensive and barely anyone bought it. This was because when it came out, it was priced way too close to the fx-53 so most ppl in the price range bought the fx and are now creaming just about anything.

    939 has a long way to go to be able be a viable replacement for socket 754 A64s.
