many occasions but I have decided on the p7n platinum on one condition:

***I plan to get another gtx 260 in a few months time, will the mobo's ability to only run at PCI 2.0 x8 for each card (as opposed to both at x16) be an issue?***

I only intend to OC the CPU to c.3.0Ghz so am not worried by the (probably fair) claims of the boards being poor OC'ers.

***One last thing, I intend to put this in Antec 300 with a coolermaster 700w PSU. Can I assume this would be enough power for 2x gtx260's?***

Cheers

Personally, I don't think that PSU will be enough, esp if you are overclocking...
