Default Which Motherboard?

Looking for a good quality motherboard for under 150$ that is Intel and SLI based. I plan on using the E8400 in it. Another member suggested the E8400, but I just noticed the board he showed me was Crossfire based. (ATI). I would like to stick with Nvidia, as I have the 8800gts OC ed. Eventually I may decide to go SLI, so..

I have 240pin ram (May be important)

I browsed newegg a little bit, but let me tell you... Some of those reviews scare the crap outta me....

There are no Intel chipsets that are SLI ready except for the X58's..

I think you mean ones that support Intel CPU's and are SLI Ready?

Newegg.com - MSI P7N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Probably that one or the eVGA 750i FTW which Newegg no longer has

That is correct, I'm sorry. I want it to support intel CPU's. I may end up going with that one as long as its indeed a good Mobo. Gonna wait a few days and see if any other feedback gets posted here.

Thank you

It doesn't have to have an Intel chipset in order to support Intel Chips. All the board needs is a LGA 775 socket.

Supported CPU
CPU Socket Type LGA 775
CPU Type Quad-core / Core 2 Extreme / Core 2 Duo / Pentium
FSB 1333/1066MHz
Vernongs board suggestion supports LGA 775 chips, so it will work.
