EVGA P55 FTW 200


$300.00 Released September, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Plenty of room for graphical expansion--3-way SLI/CrossFireX support. Great overclocking--good built-in OC suite in the BIOS. Great layout--plenty of room for three graphics cards.

The Cons:Lacks the lifetime warranty usually accompanying EVGA products. LGA 1156 upgrade path is limited now that Intel's focusing on Sandy/Ivy Bridge LGA 1155 chips. Dated compared to more recent high-end offerings--no USB 3.0, SATA III.
