This CPU and mobo will be short lived then. I'll stick with this stuff until penryn, DDR3 and X38 are doing well. That should be around January next year, right?

I love how clean the Intel board is, I have always been a huge Gigabyte fan though. Whoever put together that system knows cable management very well, that is extremely clean with all the cable ties.

might couple this with a yorkfield next year. by then i hope DDR3 has matured and dropped in price.

But how many of you are running SLI?

There's lots of folks here even with nforce SLI chipsets but no 2nd card.

Don't you mean the Wolfdale or Yorkfield?...because, isn't the Penryn the mobile processors?

Penryn is an advancement of Kentsfield. Penryn shrinks the Kentsfield chip from 65nm to 45nm and introduces the 1333Mhz FSB. It also ads 2-4MB of L2 cache (6-8MB total) and adds various new instructions (including SSE4). It also reduces the TDP of the chips and makes them cheaper to produce.

Penryn

The successor to the Merom core currently used for the Core 2 Duo T5000/T7000 series mobile processors, code-named Penryn, will debut the 45 nanometer process that will also be used for the Conroe sequel, Wolfdale (see below). Many details about Penryn appeared at the April 2007 Intel Developer Forum. Its successor is expected to be Nehalem.

Important advances[32] include the addition of new instructions (including SSE4, also known as Penryn New Instructions) and new fabrication materials (most significantly a hafnium-based dielectric).

Penryn is intended to be paired with a new chipset, Bearlake[33], which will include an increase in bus speed (connection to the northbridge, etc.) for certain models to 1333 MT/s and will include support for DDR3 SDRAM; Intel believes [34] that DDR3 is particularly useful in the power- and heat-constrained environments within mobile equipment.

Penryn will also be released in a quad-core version for desktop replacement notebooks.

Back on topic, I'm pretty interested in my boards ever since I mistakenly purchased the 965G, I've been wanting a powerhouse board. Seeing as CPUs will max out before these boards in most cases, I wonder if the 6x50s would be a good pair?

That's because it is so expensive. Most people running SLI are running 7600GTs or similar not too expensive cards. I don't think i can even find another 7800GTX. People that have the option of SLi can wait to just get a second card when they get cheaper instead of going big time and getting a single card. And now that we can get 16x/16x on a super OC'ing chipset, SLi seems more appealing.
