3DMark06 shows that the MSI K9N SLI Platinum motherboard is pretty fast when it comes to gaming.

FarCry Source: Ubisoft

Real-time editing, bump mapping, static lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows, and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features that the CryENGINE offers. The game was set to Ultra quality and the Ubisoft's Regulator demo was run.

MSI K9N SLI Platinum (GeForce 7800GTX SLI 200/800) 205.46

The MSI K9N SLI Platinum comes in first place in the FarCry benchmark. It's interesting to see that when SLI is enabled, performance goes down slightly. Just goes to show you that SLI does not always improve performance and it's a good idea for you to check your game first.
