What do you guys think about the Asus Striker Extreme motherboard. The only reason i was thinking of this, and the only reason that it fits into my budget is because i saw it at Compusa last night. It looked very nice, but i read some reviews that said that it was hard to get working correctly. Have any of you had experience with this before? Also, Invisible, what SLI mb would you suggest?

Hey, invisible, the card that you suggested was sold out, so i looked for a comaprable card and found:

Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PYDE4 GeForce 8800GT Extreme 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

I just wanted to make sure that it used the g92 chipset thing and that it was as good if not better than the one you suggested (the 20$ price increase is negligible)
