Are there any AM3 mobo's with SLI support out there? If "yes", what brand and models are there??
yes 980a SLI, i believe MSI and ASUS do one
Nvidia 980a chipset. http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_nforce_980a_sli_us.html
Asus, MSI and Gigabyte make one. You can also go with an AMD chipset AM3 board and use the SLI fix. How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware It works just as well as the Nvidia chipsets.
There's also this one... MSI NF750-G55 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI HDMI ATX ...
and a few other boards with the 750a chipset
new AMD boards will be out soon with the LUCID Chipset that supports both sli/crossfire.
The MSI 880A Fuzion 770 has Lucid already

Sli hack and any 790/890gx/fx mobo
My mobo (the Asus M4N98TD EVO with nForce 980a SLI chipset) does. It cost me a little over £90.
i have dealt with the 980/780/750a chipsets and 790FX/GX was a better chipset even with the sli hack people were getting better results on sli with them
This "SLI hack", is it done by software or BIOS mod; or is it the hardware that needs to be modified?
Completely software and there is a huge thread on it here
And its completely and easily reversible. I had done it on my MSI 790FX-GD70, and then reversed it later once I was back to a single card.
Ok, thanks for all the replies. Thing is, I don't know what to get in March. Either upgrade system with an AMD based mobo and processor OR get a completely new i5 system for 699$ (6999SEK).
The intel based system has all that I could need and also the mobo there has support for SLI. I was thinking of getting 4Gb more memory for either the AMD or Intel based system so that I have 8Gb in system memory (I'm using CS5, Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign etc.). I need more power than I currently have.
my asus crosshair iv f works on sli hack
