    The Gigabyte board. Of the 2 it does support Fx procs. Also I have never had a problem with gigabyte boards. All have worked without issue.

    I agree with that Gigabyte being a better board but the op is looking for SLI support to add a second GTX 460, SLI is available on the ASUS listed. The Gigabyte will onl do 16x/4x Crossfire.

    SLI is also supported on the 990X and 990FX chipsets- best to look around for one of those. ;)

    I'm not sure where you buy from or the cost there but these 2 boards are pretty good:

    Asus M5A99X Evo (I own one... very nice board)

    or

    Gigabyte 990XA-UD3

    Both will do Crossfire and SLI and both have good power circuits ;)
