Infinitely deep wallet?

Doesn't seem that way with their current misfortunes.

They will all fit. They are still ATX motherboards, they just have a different socket.

You need to overclock that CPU. Those GPUs are begging for more CPU power.

Well how about overclocking for dummies?
See: "Save 700$. No trouble." MSI should pay me for this.

Here are couple slides from MSI X58 Eclipse
The latest 50 page PDF "Eclipse SLI kit 1.01eu", dated 10/22/2008 can be downloaded here

The promo kit sure looks good. I put the MSI Eclipse on my short list, never had MSI mobo before.

Only drawback... it's from MSI
from the look of it, it won't do TRI-SLI, just SLI + Physx

I'm talking about their merger with The Foundry, and having ATIC and the UAE backing them now. If the relationships between AMD and ATIC + UAE remains good I see no reason why AMD can't have a "near-infinitely deep wallet" to spend from. Granted, we've yet to see how this merger will turn out. It could very well be the end of AMD and leave only Intel in the x86 game.

The only issue is that you can't put a card with a dual slot cooler into the bottom PCI-E slot unless you have a thermaltake armor+ case.
