In a month or so, ill be getting 2 470s and i want to know which board to get, since my mobo now is a POS.

I was thinking of the EP45-UD3P or P5Q with SLI hack, but i find out that the hack don't support 470s SLI yet.

Im thinking of the EVGA b-stock 750i SLI FTW.

anyone else have better mobo to suggest?

Haha, the B-Stock from EVGA looks like your best bet for cost-effective SLI. I'd buy the 750i FTW if I was in need of a motherboard at the moment, too. Better than buying a brand new motherboard for $120, at least.

I can only recommend getting a EVGA 750i FTW or a 780i FTW if you can find one (the difference between the 2 are additional Pcie, Sata and Ethernet ports on the 780i)

I recently upgraded from a Asus P5n32e SLI to a 750i FTW I found for 70$ and the difference in overclocking potential was definitely worth the price...

I would so go for the EP45-UD3P if the SLI hacks let me SLI 460s or 470s.

The 780i and the 790i Ultra are the best "supported" SLI board for that socket. I had an XFX 750i and the thing degraded faster than my eyes staring into the sun with a magnifying lens.

@metallicamaster3 - Really? I always thought that the 750i ftw were better than the 780i and 790i because it overclocked better but I might be mistaken. It's been a while since I looked at the chipset.

The EVGA 750i FTW were good boards, the XFX one I had though was pretty bad.
