OC3D Review: XFX 650i Ultra Socket 775 Motherboard

"XFX are well known for producing high-quality, high-speed graphics cards. Now they're stepping it up and getting into main-boards. I take a look at the 650i Ultra and see if they do as good a job"

Thats pretty cool, i went for evga 680i though, by the way your link to the forums on the review is dead.

When you review stuff do you just get given it to test?

Did you get my pm?

Thanks

Rob

Cool review

I find it wierd that people are talking about mobo's (or hardware in general) when they mention 'colour schemes' etc

Reminds me of this thread

Not like the old days

QT. I remember marveling at one of Abits first mobo's that used a brownish PCB and thinking how cool that was compared to the green ones. Of course the PCI slots were white and the AGP,RAM and PATA slots black.

it's the same 650i Ultra nVidia reference mobo as eVga (& no doubt others) also provide.

bit surprised that it isn't significantly cheaper than a 650i SLI solution though.

Ye I was slightly surprised at that too

Not a BAD mobo, just nothing special
