PCMark05 results are pretty much the same (sound like a broken record yet?) for all the platforms, which is nice. If you go Athlon64, you'll basically get the same performance no matter if you go economy or high end.

The GeForce 7800GTX is not powerful enough to separate the nForce 590 SLI from the nForce 570 SLI. Future generations of nVIDIA videocards should be able to take advantage of the extra bandwidth available through LinkBoost.
