Reading the guide in this forum I noticed that the topic starter was not positive about Nvidia chipsets. Was wundering after reading a test, is this also counting for the newest Nvidia chip set range??
As far as I know there is only one board based on the "new" 980a and it's an AM2+ from ASUS. The 980a is basically a tweaked version of the 780a with a few improvements, hopefully some of them for stability. Anyway nVidia chipsets seem to be less reliable, but of course if you insist on having SLI with an AMD CPU it's the only way to go.
Well if you looking for an AM3/DDR3 chipset there are none from green camp so far unfortunately but for AM2+ i agree: unless 100% confirmed going SLI then worth but then again even if one prefers Nvidia GPU a single GTX 275 isn't a slouch by any means hehe
