I'm pretty sure some P35 boards can do it (like the P35-DS3P)

The 750i is actually coming out even with the 780i's...better in some cases. The main difference is the lack of tri-sli... which no one cares about really. If your gonna go that extreme might as well go quad sli or bust

Oh no... I can't decide on anything yet...

I think I'm leaning towards the dfi lp lt p35 just because they are so good for OC'ing quads... and after all my new stuff is sitting together, i want air cooled 4ghz suicide run :P If i can't get it without lapping the tuniq, then i lap the tuniq... and if i can't get it without lapping the q6600 I'll just see how far i can go without lapping that until the new quads get cheaper then attempt a lap. -_-

Maybe you should try to brush up on finding mods for that board, maybe you could increase its value (or kill the board, but since you hate the board's guts and wanted to rip it to shreds, thats not a big risk )
