I'm looking for best AMD MOB to replace my dead ASUS A8N-SLI Premium, something that would be compatible with my current NVIDIA GTS 8800 and something that will boot up existing Raid drives from ASUS A8N-SLI Premium

Oh oh 939s Nforce 4 SLIs are not easy to come by these days @@ Try to hunt on hardware forums or h/w marketplaces

No I'm no married to any particular computer part, been looking at

GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5 AM3 AMD 790FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDZ965FBGMBOX - Retail

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ - Retail

Just wondering if my 8800 GTS 640MB will play nice enough with the above hardware?

Want something that will be good for 2 to 3 years like my ASUS A8N-SLI Premium was!

Not too smart to sink big $$ into a 7xx chipset with
a) an Nvidia GPU
b) CFable not SLI capabilities and
c) 8xx AM3/DDR3 incoming ^^

I am not sure if this applies to your GPU but some boards have ATI Hybrid Crossfire which lets you mix different card types or even use onboard graphics with the main card only working when needed (gaming). Like I said I AM NOT SURE about this but it is worth learning more about this. Good luck, soon I will be a AMD AM3 user and I can't wait! BUILD ON, BUILDER..............
