Are there no SLI boards for AM2+? I'm going to upgrade to an AMD 6400+, and I want to get an AM2+ board so I'll have more room to upgrade later... but I can't find any boards that support SLi and AM2+. Is there such a thing? And if anyone knows of one that's below $150 US can someone post it? Thanks.

EDIT: Also, if the north and south bridges are ATi or AMD, does that mean anything for a single card? Would it still be fine/ideal to put a Nvidia card in it?

afaik there is not yet a publicly available nVidia SLI chipset for AM2+ .
I believe that 1 or 2 older 590 chipset mobos may have received a BIOS update for AM2+ though.

For a single gfx card it doesn't matter if it's an ATi card on an nVidia chipset, an nVidia card on an ATI chipset etc. they should work just fine.

OK, you can go for an older chipset like me, but forget the new HT 3.0 for AMD Phenom, the CPU are supported but not the bus frequencies of them...
And you will get an SLI Mainboard.There is a total mess with the chipsets (wh buy whom and who support who).

So check this out: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

And you can get a CPU support for every big brand name on their sites (you will have to dig a lot)...
