Hello, I want to buy an AMD 6 Core CPU, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... on an AMD motherboard but, I want to be able to use SLI since I already have Nvidia card. The Intel 6core CPU is way overpriced and the AMD does the same thing for alot cheaper. Does anyone have any suggestions on boards I could use? I've heard about the SLI hack on AMD boards but I dont know how reliable it is.

Any feedback is welcome. I'm looking to purchase this rig sometime today so it comes in time for my son.

alright thanks that combo deal includes the sabertooth so I will probably get that along with some DDR3 Ram.

I don't recommend ANY of the above MOBOs especially the GA-X58A-UD3R {Google GA-X58A-UD3R +BSOD +SSD}. For the money ASUS P6X58D-E {3-WAY; 16+2 Phase} vs Sabertooth X58 {2-WAY; 8+2+2 Phase}. True gaming - look at EVGA X58 FTW3 132-GT-E768-KR .

Good Luck!
