Cost-effective Intel SLI motherboard with eSATA? Tags: Motherboards Intel SLI Product Last response: October 18, 2010 5:15 PM in Motherboards Share hamster_huey_and_the_gooey_kablooie October 18, 2010 3:48:52 PM Hi all, Just wondering if anyone can recommend a good a Intel SLI motherboard (intended for an Intel i5 760) that supports: 1) PCIe x16 at x16 single card or x8/x8 dual SLI 2) at least 1 eSATA port 3) <= $150 I've looked all over Newegg, seems almost nothing good exists below the $150 price point (or anything that does exist has something like a 15% 1-egg approval rating, which is kind of ridiculous). Thanks!
