I THINK THIS IS A GOOD ONE http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131032

THERE AREN'T THAT MANY SLI BOARDS FOR CORE 2 DUO YET, SO THIS AND SOME NFORCE 4'S ARE YOUR ONLY OPTION.

The new BIOS, 0507 unlocks the multi to 6, 7 or 8

YEah, if you can go ati side go. It will be alot more suitable for a intel. Also since you are overclocking get a e6600. It will be much more cheaper and you will not notice any difference, maybe a slight but you would have to be a person who counts gigiseconds.

Maybe not the best overclocker but will save you some money. If you want the best here it is. You won't notic much differnce if you overclock than the dfi because it is only 150mhz difference.

There arn't really any good borads for sli, so I would have to say wait a little while for some to come out. I would just get ati if you are willing.

Unfortunately there really isn't one. There are some hacked drivers to get SLI to work with the 975x chipset, but its still a little funky.

The nforce boards are crap overclockers currently.

Best option with C2D is single card or xfire right now.
