What's best single GPU mobo/chipset?

I need to know if the nForce4 SLI
chipsets are better at handling
singleGPU systems, than the ones with
only one PCI-E x16 slot, because
the Single PCI-E x16 mobo's come
alot cheaper.

I just bought a 7900GTX gfx but
don't think I'll be getting another
one for SLI, at least not before
I've switched to AM2 cpu's and DDR2
memory, and as long as nForce 4
non-SLI mobo's come as cheap as now,
I don't see no reason why I would
buy a SLI mobo just yet.

Are there any good reasons why I would
prefer SLI mobo still?

I'd prefer suggestions of mobos that come
with SATAII, so I guess that's the nForce4
Ultra only? (if it turns out non-SLI mobos are

I'll be trying to reach as much as possible
OC on stock-cooling (maybe around 2.5GHz)
as soon as I get some new memory sticks,
but until then I need good mem/fsb divider
options, since I'm not sure my kingston 2x512
pc2700 (now oc'ing to 200MHz on nF2U400 at.
2,5-3-3-7) will reach 200 MHz on the new mobo,
and I WOULD like to reach at least 2.4GHz.

Help me out pls :lol:

More about what single mobo chipset
  1. If your not throwing down for the second GPU. Then dont worry, there is no preformance difference between an SLI and "standard" NF4 chipset when running a single GPU.

    As for good boards...

    Epox, ECS and Asus have excellent products. If your into your OC'ing, then DFI is top, but keep an eye open for Sapphire....
