The current highest-of-high-end nForce 6 chipset, the 680 SLI (with both Intel and AMD flavors), is a beast of a motherboard as most any owner would tell you. The boards pack a lot of features and performance onto that ATX-sized PCB and all of that carries a somewhat hefty price tag. With the cheapest models MSRP’d at $250, the much cheaper 650 SLI chipset is a more viable option for many enthusiasts. That is, until now.
NVIDIA brings the most important features of the 680 SLI chipset to the masses with the introduction of its newest motherboard, the 680 LT SLI. With an MSRP of $199, NVIDIA has made the much sought after overclocking potential of the 680 SLI chipset to those who are not willing or able to pay more than $200 for a motherboard.
..I am so pleased with this board and the 680 platform in general. NVIDIA has done a fantastic job with the LT version from the hardware to the BIOS and EVGA has done a stellar job preparing it for the masses from the packaging to the bundled extras… If all you want are the basics the 680 has to offer, have no need for dual gigabit LAN or any of the other arguably frivolous features, this board is a perfect fit.
