Well he wanted to get rid of the P5Q Pro because he wants Dual X16...

I think the 780i is quite nice. Newegg.com - EVGA 132-CK-NF78-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards anybody have some knowledge with nvidia boards, maybe you can point me to one thats good or better than that^.

Does the "FTW" really matter?

yes it allows more stable over cloking do to solid state capasitors. dpbt be fooled by the 750iftw it actually is a 780i nb, it just has 2 sli x16 slots, they are identical no word fo a lie. ive pushed 480fsb thru my quad, which would be impossible for any other 750i board. it also has full 16x sli. with pci-e 2.0 slots.

So Newegg.com - EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards is the way to go? I dont need 3 pci-e, just 2 for future SLI.

Do the other 750i board not have all solid capacitors?

the regular 750i board only has 8x sli. where the ftw is full 16x. also other companys may have solid tsate but yet wont have 16x sli.
