    that's not really a chipset, that's a graphics set.

    It's designed for scientific applications.

    They have external enclosures that support two cards in SLI. It draws 500W :mamoru:

    It draws 500 watts? Wow.

    I know this is like 3+ years back, but how have nVidia chipsets evolved since the nforce4 times? I absolutely HATE my nforce4 because of hardware conflicts..

    that's the external enclosure with 2 of em. So each is probably 225-250W.

    nforce4 was crap. nForce2 was the last good nvidia chipset, imo.

    I've still got my original nForce. (EDIT: Maybe it's nForce2? I dunno, it's for an Athlon XP.) Never had any problems.

    (when I say "my original nForce", I really mean I used to have a VIA board and I bought this one off eBay for $20 because I wanted to max out my old hardware. :mamoru:)

    It's a good chipset, at any rate.

    horse and buggy was a fast way to get around, at one point, as well.

    No, it still is a good chipset. I'm not comparing it to the latest and greatest, but it is still in service. Just like a fast horse is better than a slow horse, even if a sports car beats them both.

    just because something works doesn't make it still good... or even relevant.
