EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI


$500.00 Released September, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Signature EVGA lifetime warranty. Sports most essential features sought after by enthusiasts. Great overclocker--everything stays cool, system performance is stable even with multiple overclocked components.

The Cons:Very pricey especially when compared to mid-range offerings lacking the superfluous 4-way SLI. Intel X58 has a limited upgrade path compared to the Sandy Bridge platform. Lacks SATA III and USB 3.0, which are quickly becoming standard even in mid-range boards.

The EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI is an XL-ATX motherboard released in late 2009. This board is comparable to EVGA’s standard X58 Classified (3-way SLI), but differs by way of an extra PCI-E slot for 4-way SLI functionality.
