Yes the ASUS striker II 780i went on sale today in europe for 256 euro. So figure probably 300 U.S. I have not seen pics of the mobo yet but I just picked up a Q6600 At frys on black friday for 199.99 with ecs mobo and I will order this board as soon as it comes out. Got my dual 8800 GT's just waiting:captnkill:

After using an Intel X38 Chipet I will have to say hell no!

What's wrong with Nvidia chipsets? Im getting a QX6950 on January and I have NO IDEA what Mobo to get, I was thinking the 780i but seems like alot of people don't like Nvidia chipsets.. What's another good motherboard coming out that supports Sli and the 45nm processors?

I hear VIA makes awesome chipsets :D

Nforce 4 was damn solid.

But that seems like a LONG time ago. ;)

Maybe it's Intel problem. Nvidia makes great chipsets for AMD.

Too bad that will never happen again. :(

Highly doubt that considering that if you take Nvidia out of the equation that Intel has made flawless chipsets for years.

The way things are going you really don't have much of a choice. If you want SLI then you must get an nvidia chipset motherboard. I personally love nvidia sli graphics so I have to put up with the chipset's they provide. I work at a PC gaming shop and I heard that the 780i is still not going to work well with penryn.
But is supposed to OC Q6600 great. Oh yeah, I live in penryn, Ca. :p

The 790i is to support DDR3 while the 780i supports DDR2, nVidia WILL have a AMD chipset titled 780a

Quit buying all the Nvidia chipsets so eventually Intel will get SLI.

I'm still baffled as to why Intel supports Crossfire and not SLI. I'm sure they would if Nvidia wasn't trying to be a chipset competitor.

Intel and AMD should make their own chipsets and Nvidia should just license out the use of SLI. Leave the second rate crap to VIA.

Crossfire is open source, anyone can support it 'if' they wish, SLI have to have a licence which NV don't seem to want to give away.

Well my next board will be an intel one I do like the 680i but with all the sisuies with it supporting this that and the other! I don't want to got through all that again.

Even tho I'm probably not getting Sli anytime soon, maybe not even next year, I'd hate to change Motherboard if I decide to get Sli.

Nforce 4 was damn solid.

But that seems like a LONG time ago. ;)

I'm using the nForce4 SLI, and it still has the packet corruption problems (inherited from the nForce2) when the PCI bus is overloaded. On my system, it still corrupts some network transfers, the dvd burner fails to burn dvds, the h264 hw decoding hangs or displays bad blacks, sound pops & clicks, and other corruption problems that make my daily use a very bad experience sometimes.

You could think that my system is overclocked, but, even with the default clocks, i've the same problems, and moreover, top of the line nForce chipsets are designed for enthusiast & overclockers, who demand maximum performance & stability, therefore, even with the overclock, it should offer you stability.

I also thought about adding a 2nd 8800GTX to my system, but, i'm upgrading to an Intel mobo in January, and due to SLI doesn't work on Intel chipsets (due to licensing only) , nVidia lost a 2nd 8800GTX purchase from me.

Personally, i think that nVidia is losing sales of gfx cards & chipsets, due to licensing politics with Intel. A couple of Radeon HD 3870 x2, look very appealing for Intel users, as i've read in this board from some users posts.

No f****ng way, I never EVER will put another nVidia chipset inside my rig, no thanks. I would love to have SLI on my rig, because I play at 1920x1200, but I prefer to lower detail or sacrifice AA with a single board than putting one of those crappy POS chipsets.

+1 On the Intel boards.
My old pc had an Intel board for over 4 years, never a single problem at all.
My new pc in the sig also has Intel board, runs like a charm as expected.
Intel Stability and reliability are fantastic :captnkill:

I think the question is "Is the Nvidia SLI license is available to chipset makers"? I would assume that it would kill their only leverage on chipsets.
