    Default Looking for a good SLi Motherboard

    Hi, I'm looking to overclock an Intel Pentium D 805 from 2.66Ghz to 3.6Ghz. They did this fine in CPC magazine using an Intel P5WD2 Premium motherboard, but I want to build an SLI PC. I had been looking at the Asustek P5ND2-SLI S775, but I wasn't sure whether it would be as good as the P5WD2 for overclocking. Is it? and if not, could someone reccomend one which is in the 70 ish price range.

    Thanks

    as far as i can remember, nforce4 intel chipsets are consistent in having less overclocking prowess than true intel chipsets.

    If you want dual cards you'd be better off with Crossfire on an Intel rig. SLI does not perform as well on Intel as it does on Nvidia chipsets.
