Default HOw do you guys feel about the Asus Crosshair Mobo?

is it too outdated to begin building off of at this point? I know it doesnt support pci 2.0 or am2+(officially, even though I hear phenoms will hopefully still work as I have just purchased the 9600 black ed.) but its got the sweetest layout, save for the sata ports not being L shaped...whaddaya think?

590 SLI.. NO NO NO

it works with Phenoms with only a BIOS Update

but i agree that the MSI k9a2 Platinum is better

If you really need SLi, then just get the foxconn 590i board.
