Unless you really plan on using sli [which IMO is nothing more than a gimmick] I would really go with a board using an intel chipset. Nothing beats the stability of an intel cpu running on a quality board using an intel chipset.

well, I want to keep sli as an option (hence why I got this one). Plus, ASUS makes quality boards, I have never had problems with them.

I recently got an asus P5K-E WiFi. No problems with it at all. The software that came with it (CPU over/underclocking etc could be better but other than that I have no complaints. Booted first time, BIOS was easy to use...
Mine has Crossfire (not used, I stupidly got a nvidia card not realising I even had two pci-e slots!) and I personally dont think much of the crossfire/SLi stuff anyway. Your better off spending the cash spent on two cards on one better card.

As I posted, sli is really just a gimmick to sell more cards. The tech is not new; it has been around since the late 90s. Asus is a quality board maker. What I said was I would go with a board using an intel NOT an nvidia chipset. If you want stability and ease of use, then use an intel chipset board.

BTW asus makes a number of boards using the intel chipset.
