HardOCP has taken a closer look at the XFX nForce 780i SLI motherboard to test if it can compete against Intel's DDR3 based solutions.
The nForce 780i SLI board is a feature complete solution, meaning that it only requires a minimal number of components for a fully operational system: an Intel LGA 775 processor, DDR2 memory, a video card, drives, and a PSU. XFX integrated the following ports in to the nForce 780i SLI: 1 ATA-133 IDE port and 6 SATA II ports (RAID 0, 1, 0+1 and 5 capable) on the 780i SLI SPP controller; 10 USB 2.0 capable ports (6 in rear panel, and 2 onboard headers supporting 2 ports each); 2 IEEE 1394 capable ports (1 in rear panel, and 1 onboard header); 2 x NVIDIA GigE Ethernet ports in the rear panel; Realtek 8-channel HD audio codec featuring an S/PDIF optical output port; and PS/2 keyboard and mouse port support in the rear panel.
Check it out over here. Overall it seems to be a pretty good choice if you want to build a SLI rig.
