From what I've read, you have found the MB you seek, just not the price.
There is however that white PCB MB, sorry I can't recall who makes it.
I know ATI makes a Cross Fire MB but I cant find the "White PCB" one I recall.

Duke, that white board is wild looking. Very different. I'm a Nvidia guy though, so its unlikely I'd ever own one, but nice nonetheless.

Sapphire makes the board with the white PCB. The best board is the DFI RDX200 but I would wait a little longer and grab the new DFI crossfire board which uses the new ati 580 chipset.

Dont do it! 7900gtx should be good enough for any one. I like Nvidia beacuse they rule opengl games, the 1900xtx is probably the best out there but nvidia have better drivers and vista support

We don't know nothing about Vista support yet...
Not bad at all...

How can they have better drivers if you just stated that the 1900xtx is better? Drivers are what let the component perform, if the 1900xtx is better as you stated, how can it have inferior drivers?

My thinking is that the 7900gtx has just come out so the drivers may not be fully supporting all of its capabilitys yet. Might be wrong though.

I was wrong when i said the 1900xtx is better, the 1900xtx is better in some tests, not all of them, i did a bit of researching and found that they are pretty much equal

Yeah, nvidia has the best drivers if you like trying 15 different drivers to find which one runs yur favorite game best. 98% of the time the latest ATI driver is the best out there, I've gained at least 10fps in my flightsim game over the past year on driver releases alone!
