Default Epox 8NPA SLI Review: Socket 754 Goes SLI

Marrying the nForce 4 SLI to Socket 754 seems like a good move. You could save money by purchasing a low cost Paris core Sempron, and get 64 bit support, and save about 50 to 60 dollars from the cheapest Socket 939 CPU. That money can be put to a better video card, and the CPU can be overclocked. A 6800GS would seem like a great budget fit to spend that extra money on, and then a nice SLI upgrade down the road when they come down in price would take the cake.

as proven by Lazyman, using SLI for upgrade is not really the ideal way to go

and future proof it ain't either, S754 will not stick around...
