[H]ard|OCP reviews the brand new nForce 680i SLI board, and were impressed right off the bat.  With no tweaking, they  and were able to reach a 1900MHz Quad Pumped speed with 475MHz FSB on an E6300, and in another test using Corsair's 1200MHz modules they were stable at 1066 bus with the 1200MHz RAM.  Kyle has found an nForce chipset he likes.

Ryan is on top of all this too, of course!

Four PCI Express x16 Slots on a Core 2 Duo motherboard

The ASUS P5W64 WS Professional is a very unique board, based around the i975X, which means it could support Crossfire.  The board itself seems designed for a different use, as it seems the 8 monitor trick is being used a selling feature more than some kind of 4 card Crossfire, although it does leave space for a PCI-Express PPU.  The overclocking potential was not huge, at least not from the perspective of the tests X-bit Labs performed.

The Tech Report is pinching themselves, just to make sure they really do see a 590 SLI for Conroe.  The previous nForce, the 570 SLI was not really anything to get excited about, it was essentially an nForce4 board.  Now they have their hands on ASUS' P5N32-SLI, so drop by to see how this implementation worked.

Dual video with an onboard graphics card

The ASUS M2NPV-VM is very handy for putting together a simple system.  With onboard audio, LAN and a graphics chip, it sets up very easily.  Even better, you can use monitors that require dual DVI, because the onboard graphics card can be used while another PCI Express card is running.  Don't plan on an SLI setup though, the onboard graphics isn't really designed for gaming.  Read all about this board at TweakTown.
