P67 based Mobo w/ Wifi?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all.

I've been thinking about upgrading my 4 y/o C2Q/Mobo/Ram to something a little newer and while I'd like to wait for Ivy Bridge, I'm not opposed to building a SB rig. However, I've got a bit of a problem:

My desktop is not near my modem/router combo (from the cable company) and I cannot move the modem/router because the wife needs a hardline for her business VPN.

Right now I'm using the P5K's wi-fi antenna to jump onto my home's wifi and it has been just fine since the network thoroughput is much more than my speed caps (1.2MB/s down and 150KB/s up).

But, I cannot find an ASUS P67 board that will let me use my ASUS antenna, nor a standard ATX board for such a setup. Do any of you know if such a board exists? I've found a few for HTPCs, but nothing 'enthusiast' level - and I'd like this upgrade to last me the next few years as well.

If nothing like I'm looking for is available, I might just wait until socket 2011/IB comes up later this year (hopefully!), but I'd really like to SLI my 560s and I can't do that on my board. I'm also kinda pissed about the FPS drop I get sometimes while playing games like Mafia 2 (seeing the frames drop from ~80 to low 30s/high 20s).

They haven't made one since the P5k (full ATX). There is a couple ITX though.
