Default Motherboards for Conroe

I will be building a computer in mid-august, and most likely will be getting a conroe. I have been looking at motherboards, and am having trouble picking one out. My main problem is that I want an SLI board, so I can upgrade later on. Unfortunately every LGA775 Board that supports SLI only supports DDR2 667, instead of DDR2 800. Why is this? also if I wait untill after Conroe is released will new motherboards come out specifically designed for conroe, or does everything that uses that socket work together?

If anyone knows of a mobo that supports both SLI and DDR2 800, please post the model. or explain why they dont exist. thanks.

Here is the best non SLI board I could find, is it solid?

*i am just finding out that the chipset of that board doesnt support conroe. what chipsets do?

Intel P4 @ 2.0 Ghz 400fsb
512mb Corsair XMS dual channel ddr400
Radeon 9800 XT 256mb
40 & 60 gig wd hd\'s
Audigy 2 ZS THX
Logitech 5.1 280watts rms sound THX
