Replace P5N-E SLI with ???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been running this P5N-E of mine for awhile now, but I think it is time to move on. The NB HS gets so hot it actually will burn you, and that's at as little as 1.399V, so I think it is on it's way out. Plus, I've been craving something that'll hit higher FSB for a long time now. Then there's the fact that it doesn't support the newer CPU's. What I need in a new mobo would be support for the new cpu's (e8400), DDR2, SLI, and around $200. Any recommendations? I was thinking maybe 780i with Tri-SLI...

780i board is the way to go but I am not quite sure that you can find one around $200. Maybe $250 for an Evga 780i A1.

I could swing $250 I guess. What is the difference with the A1 revision?

If you can swing $250 check out the Maximus formula and DFI LT-X38. Around $200 you can pick up a P5E or DFI DK-X38. If you liked the P5NE, you will love the P5E or Maximus.
