Beginning a new build, need a good motherboard for a q6600. needs to be oc-in friendly. Specs of what i'm getting

2x evga 8800 gt's
intel q6600
sata dvd burner

what i have:
2x36 gig raptors
200 gig hd
alienware case
4x1 gb ddr2
psu

so, mostly i need help with only the motherboard. I kinda want to trade my 2x36 gig raptors for 1x74 gig raptor, so if anyone wants to trade, lmk.

Go with newst technology?
I believe the asus maximus formula supports nvidia SLI.

for 680I get either the P5n 32-ESLI (which ever P5N is 680I)

or asus striker extreme.

well you will either need a 680i motherboard, EVGA makes really good motherboards, or an intel 650i board. The main difference between the two is that the 680i boards have dual 16x PCI-e slots whereas the 650i boards only have 8x PCI-e slots. Stay away from the striker extreme, its incredibly overpriced and not worth the tiny amount of extra OC'ing you get out of the extra 100$.

Striker extreme is a very good overclocking motherboard :|.

the evga 680I is just a standard 680I board built by some company and eVGA puts its name on it.

Stirker extreme is my take.

I never said it wasnt a good overclocking board, i even stated that it beats out the EVGA board, but not enough to justify its extra cost. The 680iLt is great, no one works closer with NVDIA then EVGA.
