The MSI P6N SLI Platinum motherboard handles 3DMark05 well, even though each videocard receives just 8 PCI Express lanes when run in SLI. The numbers are in line with nVIDIA nForce 680i motherboards, so perhaps it is time to up the ante and switch to Geforce 8800GTX graphics cards?

Results for 3DMark06 mirror that of 3DMark05. The MSI P6N SLI Platinum puts on a pretty good show here too.
