Yeah, I bought a P5W DH first, but not because I thought it was a "better" chipset, I just wanted the option of Crossfire if I needed it later. BUt then I re-desigend my system and RAID became more important to me, plus you can run limited Crossfire on the 965 now.

Weird thing is, when I was setting up my array on this Deluxe, it only allows me to set 4 drives in a RAID 0, won't let me use all 6.....

I'm excited for Intel Bearlake-X. 985x. PCI-E 2.0 (supporting VT, enabling all my Linux escapades to be more fun), DDR3, ect. That's when I'll upgrade.
