AMD has never been half of the motherboard market, or even close, but I'm glad to see SLi back in AMD motherboards.

For you in particular, as a then potential quad SLi user and now quad SLi user, I stand by my advice that a $315 2600K with a good HSF is the only responsible recommendation at present based on what I've seen in reviews and experienced personally. Bulldozer may change that, but it's not here yet.

then let Bulldozer come and see what happens. If it sucks real bad, then I will switch to snb since snb-e is now pushed back to Jan. 2012. (I left a thread in cpu's and mb area)
