I have my doubts if the AMD 970 NB Mobo will support SLI for later on. My 790FX-GD70 doesn't support SLI, it supports only CF. So if you plan to hang on to the 9600 or add another one later for SLI purposes, as I have the 980a would be the way to go. Iff you plan to change from Nvidia to ATI later on the way then the AMD 970 would be the way to go.
