Ok so i just mailed off the 9800gtx's for their stepup, so next week i'll have 2 260s coming in. I still have my 680i board as no one seems to want to buy a used 680i, so i'm wondering, what would be the better option to keep.

Asus Rampage Formula with 2 4870s in crossfire
Evga 680i with 2 GTX 269s in SLI

Another thing to note is that both cards are currently being watercooled using maze5 blocks and i'm getting excellent temps.
2 24" monitors, which i might end up buying a 30" if i can sell off some of my other crap.

My main reason for wondering is that i know how good evga treats their customers, while if either of my HIS cards or Asus board fry, i'm pretty much SOL.

Corsair 750tx powering everything, so thats not an issue either.

intel board has better stability, but i dont think the 680i's have that many problems. personally i love my 4870 and my x38, wouldn't trade it for an nvidia equivalent/better system.
