Hi,

  I'm running two GTX 480s in SLI mode on this MB with SLIpatch.  Works fine, but you have to 'boot' into it because of the driver. Most stuff works in SLI, except for BF3. For that game I have to not use full screen mode, but then, maximize the window. This leaves the window icons at the bottom of the screen, which is OK, because I use ventrillo ingame and sometimes need to click it up.

I got this motherboard from TD for $140 shipped after rebate. NOT BAD. I'm using a AMD 1100t cpu and 4x4GB mem chips for 16GB. It's a smooth running box and I love it.

Maybe you should do a 'quick' story on SLIpatch as a viable alternative to run SLI on 890 and older chipsets.
