Anyone look over the Newegg after Christmas sale email that went out today? Any worthwhile motherboards or processors?

I knew I should have checked that board after I posted that.. Wasn't sure if it was an AM3 board or not...

TO OP: Do you plan on SLI-ing the NVidia cards at all in the future??

If you're going with AMD, there's no point in going nVidia for the GPU if you want SLI. Most of the AM2+ and AM3 boards only have support for Crossfire and not SLI, so you can go nVidia, but keep in mind you won't be able to SLI. There are a few of them that do support SLI, like the Foxconn Destroyer, but they are a bit more pricey.

I gotta disagree with that...

9600gt should be leagues ahead of the 7900gt
