Default Motherboards for the Intel 975x Processor

Hi everyone...I have another thread where you folks are helping me between the Intel vs AMD processor but I do have an Intel questions.

Which mobo's are compatible with the Intel 975x processor? I'd also like the mobo to have SLI.

Suggestions? Thanks in advance!!

Thanks slick but the reviews of this board state that it DOES NOT have SLI.

Any other boards?

I just read that 975x boards DO NOT support SLI..NONE of them. Is this true?

Right, sorry about that. MSI is a pretty good brand, and that board looks nice, so I guess its good. Don't take it from me though, since I don't have it.

The reviews on it seem pretty decent. Thoughts?
