Gonna get the new EVGA Geforce GTX 750 TI 2GB super clocked video card… Will give me an 23% overall boost in performance over the Zotac Geforce GTX 650 TI 2GB video card…

I didn't see that you have 3 way sli for 3 way sli you would want this one. I thought you were just asking because of your gpu being pci 3.0. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=13-131-877&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=3#scrollFullInfo
That would do 16x, x8, x8.

Some people say you have to some say you don't it says fx but I think it means fx81xx not the fx83xx so I would update bios I did it, it ain't hard it should be more staple with the newest one. The man problem with this is your 3 way sli might not run all 3 just two as it says. 2 (x16 or dual x8). The one with the link says 3 (dual x16 or x16, x8, x8)

Same here. Especially the TPU and MemOK features. Plus the fact that most of the parts are made from recycled materials providing better longevity.
