MSI K9N SLI Platinum (GeForce 7800GTX SLI 200/800) 7615

Even with two GeForce 7800GTXs running in SLI, the PCI Express bus is not taxed enough to really impact performance figures. This is why 3D performance from the nForce 570 SLI and 590 SLI is on par. In general, 3D performance of the MSI K9N SLI Platinum system is very good and it keeps up with the "higher end" motherboards easily.
