Well, here's my layout.

So what mobo(s) would you recommend?
Will be using, DDR2 ram, Core 2 Extreme QX6850 and looks like the lower 8800 ultra has to go.

Anyone please chime in, want to get this by friday with 2 or 3 day shipping as i'm low on cash, but the mobo is not a price issue, well $350 is, but you know what i mean..
thanks guys!

Any of the latest chipsets by intel would suffice. Im running a badaxe 2 with an 8800gtx. Came from a 780i with 2 8800gt's in sli{nothing but grief}. The intel badaxe 2 was the motherboard I had before the 780i and it was easily the most stable platform I've used.
