    Other than SLI Support, should I be putting my ole Crosshair IV a drop in upgrade in a few weeks? Or looking at a new board with more Sata 6 and USB 3.0 support? PS..I don't use SLI or Crossfire.

    System specs list SLI and XFire, lol

    I am planning on 990FX myself, just to fully support Bulldozer. Just my 2 cents.

    Actually the Asus Crosshair IV will have Bulldozer support. There is already a beta bios out for the support. However I would wait until it is official before flashing the bios.

    Here is the Asus page showing the supported motherboards.
