Default lga775 SLI motherboard

Hey all, I'm looking for a SLI 775 motherboard, willing to exchange it with my ASUS p5q PRO which only supports crossfire, and yes, I've tried the SLI patch but it didn't work for the newer drivers. Processor to be run on this mobo is the Q6600

Preferably in Montreal, to avoid shipping. Looking for something around 40$

Hey dang I made a thread about that in the mobo's forum a while back,

SLI on a crossfire motherboard

Read the last post. I experienced a few crashes which I thought to be the SLI patch, but it was because of the unstable firmware of the SSD. However, I still don't know why the 2nd card added no performance to the benchies. In any case, if I can find a sli compatible mobo for cheap I would just go for that until Ivy bridge comes out.

I was running bc2 at ~45fps with old drivers and when I updated, it went up to ~65fps. That's why I figure if I can find a cheap board out here, or trade for one, it would be worthwhile. One of my cards is also just sitting here now, and I feel like I'm wasting it.

Well, I have the SLI patch working on 280.26. Right now the links are down, but if you do not want to spend/cannot find a new motherboard, then I can help you set the patch up.
