When I first put my sig rig togeather it was to be a gaming machine, I love AMD and Nvidia so I wanted to do an SLI set up. Due to the bard in question being out of stock I went for the one in my sig rig.

I'm temped to buy this board(M4N98TD-EVO) for my rig and giving her my current mobo, and pair it with a second 460gtx. Just want to know what you guys think about this board. Its not all that pricy and I love the idea of gioing SLI on my current vid cards after a PSU upgrade. Chime in with thoughts?

I'm most curious about how well this board OC's on the CPU/RAM. I dont intend on going instane, just my current 955BE(possible upgrade to an x6BE??) at something like 3.6-3.8GHz, and I'm thinking of letting her use my current ram as it dosnt like it when I overclock or change timings form stock...crash's like crazy!
In short im having to build a second computer, would love to get a more OC friendly setup, SLI would ROCK! This might be the board for me...sorry about the wall-o-text, just wanted to discribe the useage im looking for from a board, thanks.

no y not get better 890fxa-gd65 msi and try hack sli
-not askme i do not kno how but people say it works and just search on google

The M5 Evo is already out and I would go for that.. You can put a Nice AM3 Quad in it until you get your hands on a 4, 6, or 8 core Bulldozer soon. I would get the next gen if I were you.
