What do you think guys? Which one? I'm tired of waiting for a board. 570 chipset, or NForce4?

I finally went with the nforce4 and I'm happy with it so far though I really do not do much overclocking.

"The ASUS P5N32-SLI SE is the only board currently available that brings NVIDIA SLI to Conroe. That will be an important consideration for many. However, it is based on the older nForce4 Intel Edition chipset and suffers from very poor FSB overclocking when compared to the Intel chipsets for Conroe. On the other hand, if you plan to use an X6800 the ASUS P5N32-SLI SE does support higher multipliers and can likely take your X6800 wherever it can go on overclocking by adjusting multipliers instead of FSB. If you plan to use one of the locked Conroes (E6700 and below), you will not be happy with the limited FSB overclocking performance of the P5N32-SLI SE. nForce 500 Conroe boards will be out in August and September, and overclockability on Conroe should improve up to 10% over the P5N32-SLI SE according to NVIDIA. That's still a far cry from the 400+ overclocks some of the 975X boards are reaching, however. Overall, the board turned in some excellent performance scores and swept the 1600x1200 game benchmark results."


Looks like you'd better either wait for nforce 590 or get the 570 board, since you plan to use the E6700.

After 2 solid months of waiting the lack of huge overclability will be ok. More especially because DFI cancelled their board til November.
