Hi All,
I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good performing motherboard for my system that is compatible with what i have.
Q9550 - 2.83ghz -overclocked to 3.6
4GB 1066mhz Corsair dominator twin2x2048C5DF
8800GT (will go sli eventually)
650W Cooler Master power supply
Windows Vista Premium 64bit

I will eventually upgrade to a new vid card (possibly two). Are the I-7's the best way to go? Oh, and I am looking in the $250 range.

790i (SLI) for overclocking quads imo, i-7's are crazy fast but if u already have a q9550 oc to 3.6 i wouldn't suggest getting an i-7 seeing as performance is not that much of a diff unless u oc to 4ghz+

I wouldn't recommend any SLI mobo other than X58, which requires an upgrade to i7 and DDR3.
