Overall? I'm yet to see concrete proof on Intel's chipset supporting SLI, till Intel says it or nVidia releases drivers for Intel with SLI support? I'm letting the fat lady sing, otherwise it's back to square 1.
You just don't believe you will see SLI on Intel...

There are no technical issues. The only issue is licensing.

45nm Penryn chips will be out Q1 08.

The 8800 is on the 90nm still and 8700-8300 cards are on 80nm . Amd/Ati went 80nm on the x2900 but has massive voltage leak thus we see a 210+watt pull from the gpu.

Will Penryn be Socket LGA775? If so, I would not mind waiting and getting:

-2x1024MB of DDR2 Memory
-Intel Penryn Dual Core Processor
-Intel Bad Axe 3 X38 Motherboard

Holy Crap. I am going to wait until Q4'07 or Q1'08 before getting a new computer. I need a Processor, Motherboard, and Ram. Penryn + X38 + nVidia GPU = Awesome.

You may want to get 4GB of memory. That is definately going to be the new standard.

Not till I see it with my own eye.

And "if" there's SLI on Intel, I'm jumping in the SLI wagon, but with a 2nd GTX in two years from the first release of the 1st Intel chipset that supports SLI.

I don't think I'll ever buy two high-end cards just for show or to be a benchmark junkie. In two years the 8800 GTX will be a low-end card.

I don't think I will ever get SLI either. The news isn't so much good for me as it is good for the industry. I personally see SLI as a super high end option only.

This X38 chipset is going to be a real killer.

What I would really like to see is a dual socket 775 enthusiast board. 2 x Q6600....
