DFI also have an SLI board out now and MSI versions should be out or not too far away

We've been using the ASUS SLI board in our labs for some time now and it has proved very good as far as stability goes and performance and overclocking is very good

If you've got the money go the FX-55 and two 6800 Ultra's and you'll have a grin on your face for a week, just like we did when we first started testing

k thanx the reason i was thinking about the Gigabyte board is cause it has both sli and agp vid slot so i can keep my current vid card until i get the money for a pair of SLI cards or keep the agp card for future trouble shooting if need be. but thanx for the help.
