I am not sure which way to move on my next mobo. I really wanted to try out the new Asus Striker II Extreme 790i mobo when it comes out on 03-18-2008. Or should I go with the Asus Maximus Extreme mobo. I am thinking of trying out the new 3780 X2 DDR4 version when it comes out in a Crossfire setup. Or just stick with Nvidia which will be a high price GPU I would think? Help me decide... I already have my DDR3 memory. I picked up some Crucial Ballistix DDR3 2GB for $200.00.

Also I plan on buying the new QX9650, maybe a QX9770, or just stick with my lapped Q6600 Go for now? I would grap a Q9450 but after seeing the retail price of $400.00 is not worth it to me with a x8 multi when you can double it and get a better Extreme chip like the QX9650.

Thanks for your 2 cents..

Well if I were you I would wait for some real info. about the cards and then see what they really have to offer when they come out. Speculations are said easily but reality is another thing!!!

On the other hand, I would go with the 790i with a tri SLi
