I know their are a million posts about this, but none really match mine, so here goes:

I want to run the following system (some parts will come from my current system, some will be bought):

Pentium D 820 (OC'd as high as I can go, I dont wanna be limited by the mobo, no worries about heat for now)
2GB PC-5300 DDR2 RAM (Twin 1 Gb sticks)
2 WD 250gb SATA2 HDD's in RAID0
2 6800GT's in SLI configuration

So basically I need the best overclocking mobo which has SLI, SATA2, and DDR2 capability.

I've seen many quesitons about SLI on Asus motherboard requiring hacked drivers, what's up with that? Sounds like it might affect me.

I think the basis of the(hacked drivers) is for the intel chipsets that dont support SLI(which are supposed to be the best overclocking boards). I dont think there is an issue with the actual SLI setups.

The Gigabyte GA-G1975X is a very nice motherboard. I am getting one for myself. It is designed for OCers, and it will support all intel future processors.

Another Great board (which is not out yet) is the new ASUS P5WD2-E Premium

Which one is better is up to you!

NOTE: Although they say they do not support SLI, a hacked driver can easily make it support SLI. It is also rumored that it will not be long before Nvidia releases an official SLI driver for Intel chipsets.

Thanks to both of you for the help. Sorry for one more question.

When you say that the Gigabyte GA-G1975X mobo will support all future Intel Processors, that means it would be able to run the future Pentium D 9xx series processors using 65nm(Presler)? Thanks again.
