Tell me what your budget is and I could come up with couple systems that would support SLI Intel or AMD.
Well as I said I'm in no hurry so the budget can be planned when I find out my options.
I don't buy cheap and I like to OC if that helps.
BTW the reason why AMD mobo's do not support SLI is because AMD is teamed up with ATI, have you never heared of AMD/ATI.
Yeah ATI do graphics cards don't they. No I did realise that this was the reason for the great Xfire chipsets, just surprised that Nvidea hadn't come back with more options. Like I've already said I'd prefer some Intel options as I'm pretty clued up with the AMD options, I just imagine the Intels being a bit pricey.
The Intel equivalent would probably be a P55 board with the i5 760. It should be priced pretty much the same, and will be faster then the 1090 in games. The 1090 will be better in a few apps that scale with cores, but overall the 760 is faster.
The i7 920/930 is also priced pretty close to the 1090, but the boards are more expensive.
So I'm gonna stick with what I've got at the mo as after looking into it I'd like my next move to be towards an X58 with a 6 core i7 so I'm gonna save up some cash and wait for the 980X to drop to £100 / $155.
