However, there are a lot of power-users out there that are not all that fussed about multi-GPU technologies and are just as happy to use a single GeForce 7800 GTX or Radeon X1800XT graphics card. For these gamers their choice of motherboard is quite broad as they can easily select between an nForce4 X16 SLI or a 975X Express motherboard. So which chipset would you rather run with? On paper the older of the two, being the nForce4 X16 SLI, actually looks more impressive. For example it offers almost twice as many PCI Express lanes, twice the memory capacity, more USB ports and better bandwidth for multiple graphics cards. Let’s move on to compare the performance of these two chipsets...You can check out the comparison over here.
