With AMD dead it's going to be hard to buy one but I can sell you mine Athlon x2 4200+ at premium price (no Arabian connection).


Now about the SLI and X58:

AMD and Nvidia should step on Intel and say you know **** you, you wont see SLI and Crossfire on your boards.
Last post on this thread was June 6, 2008 before it was forwarded and apparently the above is no longer true.

Or Google more.

It was NVIDIA own fault they wanted the SLI on they chipset only since it could easy be done by software without any cost. They should have reached the agreement with Intel much sooner. ATI crossfire was open for Intel to use.
