Title says it's all.

I do not wish to upgrade my ram or video card so I am looking for a motherboard that has the following features:

DDR2
SLI
Will work with a Phenom X4 955 AM3 processor

and if at all possible, is a great overclocker

I have searched all over the internet and used neweggs search tools and have yet to find a board that is still for sale that supports this.

Thanks for your feedback in advance!

The biostar TA790GXE supports crossfire and even runs the new 6 core x6 phenoms with a bios update. It runs $56.99 plus shipping at newegg. If you still insist on sli, I would sell your ddr2 on your local craigslist and switch to ddr3. Craigslist is free. I buy and sell stuff there all the time.

look for a 750a board or 980a board, the 980a board is the sli equivalent of a 790fx or 890fx

the only 750a that has SLI and DDR2 is the ASUS M4N72-E which is out of stock on newegg. The 980a are all ddr3 boards.

I really do not want a ddr3 board o1die because its been shown that the money vs the performance gain isnt worth it. Especially considering I have several sets of DDR2 that I can utilize for free.

I appreciate the feedback though.

Is there perhaps some other boards out there to look at?

ASUS M3N-HT DELUXE/HDMI Supports with latest bios the Phenom II X4 965 and uses DDR2, but says AM3 CPU may require 1066Mhz memory, it should work with 800mhz......also support SLI or tri-SLI
