    I am struggling to find the best mobo to suit my needs (new or s/h), what it must have -

    LGA775
    1333MHz FSB (stock setting)
    DDR2 1066 (stock setting)
    2 way SLI or more

    Are there any I should avoid, brands, chipsets etc.

    No answer from the day shift, can any of the ocuk night shift help :D

    The only one I've found so far is the Asus Striker II Formula - good/bad idea ?

    Using a Q9650 and Corsair XMS2 8500.

    striker II is a very bad idea mate. Renowned for failure, we've had enough back here to know this!

    Take a look at the EVGA 750i F.T.W edition, I used to have one with the same chip as you, 4Ghz on air, was good work!

    Well cheers for that, you have no idea how close I just came to buying one.

    Will be a bit tough trying to find an EVGA 750i F.T.W edition :(

    Another one I have been looking at - XFX nForce 750i - good/crap ?

    FYI I only overclock on air.

    halz :)
