Default 975x motherboards

I though Iknew what motherboard I wanted but then I was looking through the forum.

I cant find a motherboard that is 975x and supports nvidia sli, they are all crossfire!!!

will a evga 7900gt work in the mother board or is it best just to stick with a ip965 chipset?

Thanks in advance!!

I believe they are ATi compatible only, I am not even sure about the 965 chipset weather they'll support nVidia SLi, may be nVidia will be beringing their nForce series 5 for Intel platforms as well.

Intel Core2Quad 2.66Ghz 12MB L2-Cache
4096MB DDR Kingston Hyper-X
GigaByte GA-P35-DS3R

It will run fine.

If you want SLI there is a nForce4 board.
