Have you tried different hard drives and stuff like that? You don't even know if it's your motherboard causing the problem. That's an awful lot of money to throw at something you're not even sure about. Try and narrow it down to what's exactly causing the problem and if it is your motherboard then build a new system if you like.

i'm going to buy an x38 board, sell 1 GTS and stick with a single card configuration, or maybe even go crossfire when the x2's come out.

well i don't know if i'd call it Crossfire, but yeah you can Crossfire/Sli two nvidia cards on a intel chipset. i've done it on my board and it works just fine, but i never really looked into a scaling difference. heck my board came with an sli bridge... but no driver support lol.

also casefog he was probably referring to the 3870 x2's...

Get another extra GTX for a total of 3 and one of the supported Nvidia boards so you can do Triple SLI..

Actually, I've changed my mind and want to grab the Maximus, new water cooling stuff, and the QX9650. This rig will still put me at the top of the 3DMark06 List... Plus it has a lot of future upgradability, supporting DDR3 and PCI-e 2. and stuff.
