Ok folks looks like Asus has begun shipping the ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboards! I just got confirmation from the place I ordered from, my motherboard was shipped on the 8th and will be here on the 10th! So all of you who are waiting for your preorder shouldn't have to wait that long now the boards are finally shipping! (xmassign2 (newyr)

If I told you I will have to kill you! (mikec) Lol no I preordered the motherboard here ComputerHQ.com , its high but I am building the system for a christmas gift, for myself, it's best gift you can get, lol! (snow=D)

Ps: My friend just emailed me he just got confirmation his motherboard has been shipped also! He ordered his here: www.Ajump.com

Looks like Asus had the factory burning late nite oil to produce lots of these motherboards! (snowlol)

That's pretty much what I'm gonna be running once I hear about people using these things. Although it'll be a while before the 2nd graphics card gets purchased.

Hey! Thats my rig (soon to be anyway :) )

Nice to hear that Asus is finally shipping the boards! (xmasmile)
Imagine playing Doom 3 with 2x6800 GT's. I can't stand the drops i'm getting with my fake XT.

Holy crap $300 motherboard + (2)$400 video cards = $1100 for just mobo/video.

And I thought I was being extravagant paying $800 for a CPU. :eek:

Looking at the Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe they put the two pci express 1X slots between where the two video cards would go. Would that be enough room to have 2 video cards and then have something like a sound card in those pci express 1X slots?

Gate buddy just a suggestion but it probably would've been a good idea to post that question in the A8N shipped thread instead of starting a new one. Little more efficient that way.

To late for that. Just try and keep an eye peeled next time. :)

A mod might just close this now though and if so just repost your question in that thread instead.

Gate, It looks like you can stick one pci express x1 card but it will have to be really small :

but you are not suppose to have any card between the two video cards, Asus design a wider gap so more air flow can pass between the cards. But you do have 2 more slots to stick what ever pci cards you want, look:

The other pci slot is right in front of the video card's heatsink so you can not use that slot. (snowcool)
