Can you tell me more about the SLI (hack) you mentioned in your first post. Both of the 890GX boards i'm looking at have 2 pci-e 16x slots, are you saying these would both work for SLI 16x per slot? I picked up another 9800gtx+ for a great price so i'm gonna run SLI, at least until i can come up with a bit more money!

Sure i can. To give you an idea of how it works, is the SLI hack uses a simple Windows "trick" to make it think you have a different chipset. For instance on my Asus 790FX board the hack made Windows 7 think i had an Asus X58 board. Now when i did this the hack was still fairly new with a 50/50 success rate. According to the makers they have been able to achieve success on virtually all boards because its so easy to do now.

Anyways, heres the how to site to allow SLI on your AMD board. Project xDevs:
