What are the advantages of using Intel's X38 Chipset? vs. NVIDIA's current 680i and soon to be released 780i. How will Intel's X38 Chipset be better for the user? I know it will sport the new PCI-Express 2.0 and have better oveclocking features for the cpu and memory but aside from that how do you define it being better if any?

I would have gone with the p35 if I hadn't chosen an sli option for future proofing my video card. I hear far less complaints about intels chipsets then I do nvidia's.
