Fact is that X38 boards support them too.

But it doesn't matter until we know his max budget..

well i wanna spend around 1200 and what i have in my sig is right at 1200... but now that i think of it a quad will last me long enough that updating my cpu will prob only happen when i update my mobo cpu and gpu so i guess its not that big of a deal

Thats a good budget since you can reuse your heatsink power supply and RAM.

So most definitly go with the Abit Quad GT or if you want bragging rights and the name, asus maximus formula.
