Yes if you have money what do you want to go with as far as CPU ? Staying with the same or no ? I would say any SLI board from ASUS , Gigabyte , or perhaps ABIT they are good overclockers . Watch as some boards have a 2 8x instead of 2 16x or have the one as 16x and other when in SLI is only 8x or something lower then 16x .

i was confused with the cpu. im aware that intel is better however i recently got the best athlon as you can see . does that mean i have to also sell athlon and get a intel SLI mobo then?

also obviously i want 2 16X i assume as well yea?
