Ok since my eVGA 680i SLI SE died on Wed. Its RMA time for that, I might sell it when I get it back sooo, I have been thinking I really dont have a need for SLI and I kinda want support for Penryn and Quad core as well.....DDR3 and DDR2 wouldn't hurt either.....the only board I can think of is this...but no support for DDR3.

P5k I belive is the lastest "trend"

I'm sure you must have seen it around, it supports DDR3 and quad.

I hope I have the right Idea..

The NVIDIA 600 series will support Penryn. So if you are sticking with DDR2, just stick with your EVGA board.

you could wait and get an X38. doubt it will increase performance enough to be worth it if you already have a working mobo.

Well, with all the bad things people reporting with their nForce 6xxx, it's no point in going back, just switch to an Intel chipset if you don't need (useless & the gimmick) SLI.

To this day, it's so pointless to buy a chipset that's well known to have so many issues, well, actually since the nForce 4s, but yet people have to buy it because of the option of (something they'll never have anyway) SLI.

Switch to a P35, just like some have and leave the troubles behind.

So the Gigabyte P35 board I linked to is good?
