    alright, the pci-e slot on my p5w dh deluxe took a crap. so im in need of a new motherboard.
    ive been looking at the evga 680i SLI and the asus striker extreme.
    i will be overclocking and plan on running SLI in the very near future as more and more games are coming out.

    e6300 plan to run it around 3.0Ghz
    tuniq tower
    8600 gts
    raptor 150gig
    enermax 600watt
    2x1gig g.skill

    if you have any other suggestions im open. thanks

    Not much for choices when it comes to 680i, they are all 8 months old for most parts.

    The only one i would consider is the DFI 680i LT

    im open to other suggestions. i just read a couple 'budget builds' online and in magazines and these were the boards they were using.

    Well for SLI, there isn't much else you can do at the moment.

    the striker is stupid. you don't need SLI support i assume if you were running a p5w. get a p35 mobo.
    edit: i'm fucking stupid and didn't read the whole post apparently.

    evga 680i is pretty much the best for SLI right now
