first of all, sorry for my bad english... ^_^

i have two 295GTX and i want to buy a new mainboard (cpu and ram of course) to put them in QuadSLI.

it's a good choice to buy now a P55 - X58 main or maybe it's a better choice wait until next socket/chipset?

IMPORTANT NOTE: the new motherboard MUST have at least a free and usable PCI 1.1 slot when quadsli is active!

thanks in advance!

yea i had the same problem trying to find a board i found one in the end its a asus p6t deluxe v2 it runs sli and crossfire saying that i have trouble enabling sli on the board but it is sli certified and is a x58 chipset i presume you are using a lga13336
socket i7

i see the asus P6T series, all the board from simple P6T to P6TD Deluxe must support SLI & QuadSLI and has a free PCI 1.1 slot...

but you have problem to use SLI on P6T Deluxe?

p.s. i haven't any cpu or mainboard now, i'm using a 775 socket....

Hello and welcome to the forums
If you want to wait,you can't ever buy anything because there is always something new around the corner.
So go with either you want,both are great chipsets.
I don't know the exact problem of "Philip Bristow" but P6T Deluxe should handle 2 GTX 295s fine
