    I am surprised that no firm has done this earlier, but EVGA has now shown off a mATX board with SLI. Its small, but it has all the bells and whistles. Including four SATA ports and four memory slots.

    i can already see this thing selling like hotcakes among the HTPC crowd...

    imagine that... an HTPC with SLI... that can be pretty damn cool... bucketloads of performance in a small compact package...

    2-slot video card cooling is alrdy impossible with a mobo of this size and w/ sli, it should run pretty damn hot in a htpc...

    2 slot video cards in SLI can be done easily with this board - its designed to do it!!!

    Anyway, sod SLI - whens DFI going to release its bloody RD580 Crossfire board. :banghead:
    When that comes out i can finally update my PC with a 1900XT-X. I already have an Opty 146 @ 3Ghz & 2Gb DDR500 mem.

    all I can say is, all these new boards with 1 PCI slot that can be blocked out by a 2-slot cooler had BETTER have onboard audigy's lol. Unless these guys start making sound cards that go in the PCIeX1 that nobody uses :p . I suppose that these guys think that we dont need too many PCI devices, like sound cards, network adaptors, USB hubs...etc.
