But at least that board has all the slots
No tri-SLI on the ASUS because the bottom card would overhang the motherboard.

Don't most cases raise the motherboard a little allowing overhang?

EDIT: Bracket! I forgot bracket!

There are more cases than just the Thermaltake with room at the bottom.

I bet all then new mother boards will be around $400 to $500 since it has so much stuff on it and will do both crossfire and SLI.Plus the new i7 CPU with be high since I think the first ones to be released are the enthusiast CPUs.That will probally be over $500.Then I will have to buy new DDR3 ram.The new i7 cpu's sounds like they should be a decent upgrade if they are going to be Quad cores and have two threads and I think they will be Tri-channel instead of dual channel.Is it a rummor or they going to have a 8 core CPU with two threads.
