Ok cool, so does anyone have a board for me then ;), I don't have the 300 buck for a board, had an emergency and blew the board money on it. I can pull together about 200.

On a side not I found a guy who want's to sell the x58so for $150 to me, I don't want to take it but the cash issue just came up and i might be foreced to take it if i dont find anything good for 200 flat.

I think you can find a Gigabyte EX58-UD3R for under $200.

Keep your eyes out on the buy/sell here and at RFD. You'll find someone unloading one soon enough.

Or, if you're a true modder, grab a P6T SE and cross flash it with the regular version for SLI support
