EVGA took the original overclockers dream; The EVGA 790i SLI FTW; and made it even more extreme with the addition of Digital Power Management (Digital PWM - Pulse Width Modulation), once again improving upon the voltage stability and efficiency. In addition, the EVGA 790i SLI FTW Digital PWM includes solid state capacitors, an 8-Phase Power design, on-board all ferrite core chokes, an enhanced enthusiast BIOS, Vdroop control and much more. The EVGA 790i SLI FTW Digital PWM is said to be the ultimate platform for those who demand the best and want to run SLI!

€349 in the states of the European Community... If you convert that into dollars based on the current exchange rate ($1.38) it comes out to $485!!

playing with this board right now and the digital PWM is rock solid with a Wolfdale and a QX9650, both at 4500MHz. It's an expensive board but I think it's a fantastic rival to the Strike 2 Extreme from Asus and the 790i Ultra that it's sort of replacing.
