So...........

I'm thinking of upgrading as I'm sure alot of people are.

I have my eye on the E6700 Conroe......

I would love to get an Asus board but the issues arise becuase I have an EVGA 7950GX2.

I have yet to see a motherboard from Asus or Abit that can do the E6700 conroe and the 7950GX2 and something that is DX10 compliant so when the G80 comes out, I will be all ready to go.

Is it just a waiting game now...will the 7950 accepted motherboards that can use Conroe be out soon....or am I way off on this and there really aren't any issues?

I Asus to release something that supports both conroe and 7950GX2 quad SLI or just general SLI?

Yes, many of the manufatuars are. What everyone's waiting on is the 590 chipset boards which yes, do feature SLI support. Asus has one out now but it's only a 570 chipset board, and so far the reviews on those 590 boards are just jaw droppping. The boards should be out starting August 1st.

My mistake, it's just an nforce 4 board, but does support SLI.
