You've used EVGA's video cards for running down your in-game enemies, now add their mobo to your arsenal. Their nForce 750i SLI-based board is designed to keep you ahead of the curve for a long time to come. It can handle LGA 775 based CPUs from the Pentium 4 through the new Core 2 Extreme and Core 2 Quad. And you can jam up to 8GB of dual channel DDR2 1066 memory to run the front side bus at full speed.

There's no on-board video to draw power since EVGA and nVIDIA knew that you'd just install your own video card anyway. The dual PCIe x16 support SLI mode and a bridge are included. They didn't waste space with back panel connectors you'll never use. The LPT and COM ports have been replaced by 6 USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire and an optical S/PDIF port. Plus there is the Gigabit Ethernet and 7.1 channel audio ports.

It is the little things that show that this is truly an enthusiast's board. On the side of the board are power, reset and CMOS reset buttons so you can build and tweak the system before you mount it in the case. The LED display will show POST codes to help you diagnose any problems. The caps are all solid state for better efficiency and longer life. Take your game to the top, EVGA can help.

2 out of 5 eggsDEAD

Pros: Motherboard has great features. Post codes are helpful

Cons: The motherboard has died. I purchased this through here back around 2009 so its only lasted about 4 years which is a shame. I rarely did any gaming with it, never overclocked it... the computer mainly was used for internet browsing. Im sad to say the motherboard is giving me a red light under the CPU fan connector after about 10 seconds of being on, then shuts itself off. I swapped in another CPU, same thing happened. I tried another power supply, same result. Im now using a different motherboard with the same CPU, PS, and GPU and its working fine so its definitely this motherboard. Electronics should last more than 4 years... and of course its out of the warranty period. Will not be buying another EVGA board!

Other Thoughts: Researched this issue and MANY people end up with this same issue with lots of EVGA boards. I always though EVGA was a decent brand? guess not

5 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard

Pros: Has been running great for 4 years. Nice digital code to show any errors that could happen. The BIOS is easy to navigate and change settings.

Cons: Only one USB header which makes it hard to add more external if you want.

Other Thoughts: I wish it had more sata ports, this only came with 4.

5 out of 5 eggsThis board has been amazing!

Pros: Price, Looks, Overclocking ability, POST code reader, EVGA tech support to back it all up. Ive owned this board for about 2 years now, and ive overclocked the Hell! out of this thing and ive never had a problem with the board. Ive got an q9505 2.4ghz running at 4ghz Stable!. 2 470gtx's in SLI, overclocked like hell. Rams overclocked super low. This board has been amazing!!

Cons: Sata ports are a pain

Other Thoughts: Its funny to see all of these negative comments, either i lucked out or some people just didnt match parts up correctly. This board has handled everything ive thrown at it the past couple years and its still going strong. I just bought a p8z68 v-pro tho because EVGA seems to have lost there lead in mobos as far as the z68 chipsets. Either way, this 750iftw board has been put down as AWESOME in my books.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid board

Pros: Great overclocker
Very stable bios, with tons of features
Its by EVGA
Love the list of post codes in the board's manual.

My first 750i ForTheWin was DOA. I sent it overnight to EVGA's RMA in Cali from Canada on Thursday night, and I had the replacement Monday morning. All in all, amazing service that didn't push my build time up too much, so no -eggs.

Cons: Installing any sort of non-pushpin aftermarket heatsink w/backplate is annoying - very tight space when attempting to use a mini-wrench to screw things in place.

SATA orientation could be a bit better - it was a pain having to pull the HD cages out of my case to plug in the HDs after I'd already installed the board. Almost broke a connector on the board trying to plug in my HDs because of the metal clips on the SATA cables that came with the board.

Had to manually set my RAM's timings, voltage and speed as they were all being picked up incorrectly - more of a slight annoyance than anything really.

Other Thoughts: I use this board in an Antec 900 case, and ended up having to purchase an extender for my CPU power cable.

Antec 900
Q6600 @ 3.0 @ 30c idle w/AC MX-2
Xigmatek HDT-S1283 w/backplate
EVGA 9800gtx
OCZ EvoStream 720w
2x2gig GSkill @1066 (unlinked)
2 WD Caviar Black 500gig HDs running RAID 0

Altogether, this board made things quite easy for my first gaming machine build.

1 out of 5 eggs3 time DOA!

Pros: None

Cons: Original MoBo from newegg wouldn't boot.

Rma'd to EVGA and the 2nd attempt worked for 1 hour and then posted an "FF" code and died.

3rd attempt at RMA was just the same problem. It seems EVGA keeps sending me the same board back.

After $150.00 plus $30.00 in shipping it back twice, I'm giving up and will never buy an EVGA board again!

Manufacturer Response:


The FF can be caused by many different things, such as 8pin connector not plugged in or CPU connection issue.

Can you please contact us directly at 888-880-3842 so we can work to correct it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Board with some Issues

Pros: The card has many features for those out there looking to overclock. I wanted to do SLI and got it going.

Cons: I did not believe all the comments about the SATA ports being tight. It sounded hard to believe until I tried to connect them myself. Those ports are so tight, it could survive chemical warfare. For those out there using Sleep mode, the system crashes when it wakes up. Perhaps a BIOS update needed? I dont know. So the description of the PIC-e ports say 16x, right? What you won't see anywhere, but the manual, is the fact that in SLI mode they run at 8x. That might be the industry's standard, but the complaint is that it was not clear on the product page either.

Other Thoughts: Despite the crashing issue and the PIC-e ports in SLI, I like the card. It beats MSI by about a lightyear. Love it and would buy EVGA products from now on until I be strongly adviced otherwise. I don't rate Newegg on these reviews. That's what Bizrate is for.

5 out of 5 eggs5/5

Pros: + Works flawlessly.
+ I have 1 GPU right now, room for expansion (SLI).
+ Has a chipset fan.

Cons: - Careful with the geometry, the CPU slot is positioned in a way, that if you have a large CPU heatsink/fan, it can hit your power supply, and thus not fit.

Other Thoughts: Got this with 4GB OCZ RAM, in a bundle. Great deal!

3 out of 5 eggsEVGA 123-YW-E175

Pros: Good board for OC, amazing Phoenix BIOS controls all aspects of OC. No video is a plus for all who have video cards. Cooling of critical components is excellent with even a small radiator standing on board with a fan, no less. Except for orientation of SATA plugs, and haphazard placement of plugs for IE1394/USB case plugs, this board looks very good.

Cons: USB ports are on side of board, virtually inaccessible becauses they are facing side- instead of vertical-oriented, and there are only four (needs 6). Cables shipping with board are of low quality, poorly flexible. Documentation is poor (not for newbies), and is not in color. Pictures are of poor quality.

Other Thoughts: I used this board in Antec 900 case, and had to remove two cooling fans to get board and cables to fit. I am returning board for Gigabyte board that is better thought through.

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA Rocks!

Pros: Very easy install, boot up first time flawlessly. This thing is fast! Great overclocking potential, and tons of Bios options.

Cons: Sata Ports are very hard to reach, and the cables that came with the motherboard are hard to push in. Not a huge deal, but a bit annoying.

Other Thoughts: Once you know, you buy from EVGA! The lifetime warranty is great, their customer support is amazing, and their step up program is awesome! They are what Asus wishes they could be. I will only buy from EVGA from now on.
