So as some of you may know I had to RMA my Crosshair MB, got it back last week, it looked like it belonged to a heavy smoker, and the heatsinks looked terrible, scratched and battered, but that wasn't the worse the lan ports were dead. So I had to RMA it again, I went and got a cross shipment on it last thursday, ASUS said the new board will ship out Friday, Well that didn't happen, It shiped today, after I noticed the repairs on the Bad board I sent back were done. I am thinking they waited till they repaired that board and are just sending me that one back. Fedex.com says I will have it back on Friday, but If it looks like the last one did, or even worse doesn't work I am just building a new comp.
So then that leaves me with the question of what to get. I want SLI, and I want to stay AMD, but my choices are way to thin, I may have to go the other way to Intel but I am fighting it. Suggestions?

What's your budget and what parts do you need?

You will not be the first one to switch over from AMD to Intel. In time I hope to switch back to AMD myself. But in the meantime, you have to consider performace over loyalty. It is your computer, so you will have to decide which way to go. But there is no arguing the fact that Intel C2D and Quads are the best CPU to get for performance.

Has to do with selection of NIVIDIA SLI chipsets amoung AMD Motherbaords ATM. Right now there really is only the NFORCE 590, which my crosshair was, but since it has died on me and I have a strong feeling ASUS is not going to give me a good working one. With that in mind if I am going to have to spend money on a new motherboard I might as well make a new build and upgrade, so keeping my wants of SLI in mind the choices are pretty much limited to Intel unfortunatly.
