Gigabyte G1 Assassin Review
Far Cry 2 and Metro 2033

Far Cry 2
When we recently returned Far Cry 2 to the benchmarking fold we've found it surprisingly tough on systems, as you can see from the lack of difference between the different cards on offer. One setup clearly dominates the proceedings yet again and it's no surprise it's the monster that is our SLI rig. The SLI scaling is almost 100% (about 99.99%) showing what a beast the Gigabyte board is. No matter what you put in it it wont be a limiting factor.
We've often mentioned Metro 2033 as being a curious twin of Far Cry 2. Rather than rely on brute horsepower to get the job done it takes advantage of every DirectX tweak in the book. Once again the Assassin gives us 100% scaling between the two GTX580s. If you want to go SLI, there clearly is a new King in town.

As for P67, it's still a viable option for noobs, I hope. Especially if we don't use the S2 ports.Quote
I missed out on X58 and went strait from 775 and P45 to P67 and 1155 but if I hadn't done that I probably would have gone for this board.Quote
