Though it doesn't have SLI support, I've heard great things about the ABIT AW9D-MAX board. It's not too often you see 75% 5 eggs at newegg for a motherboard. The only complaints were regarding SLI really, but it says nowhere that it offers SLI support, just 2 PCI-E slots. Like say you had a high-end graphics card and a lower ATI All-in-wonder, but you wanted to do the multimedia stuff that the All-in-wonder offers, so in the BIOS you'd boot off of it. When you wanna game, you choose your high-end card. At least, I'd guess that's why they have 2, or for similar situations. There may be a mod for it, but I wouldn't risk that if you want SLI, and I really doubt there is one. Have fun, and good luck with your build.
