Hi Guys

I'm struggling to find a motherboard that's available anywhere in the UK that will be good enough for my new rig that I'm building. I've already ordered all the other bits, but there don't appear to be any 680 based mobo's available anywhere (all the stockists I've spoken to say the Asus Striker and the new Abit IN9 32x MAX aren't due in until the New Year :( ).

I need to get my machine up and running in the next week or so, what other boards would you guys recommend for the following key components?

Core 2 Duo E6600 cpu
2Gb Corsair Dominator PC6400 RAM
640Mb Gainward BLISS GeForce 8800GTS

I'm not really big on overclocking, but I want a good solid reliable SLi board that will work well with the rest of the parts and allow a bit of tweaking. Lets say that £150, or $300 is my budget (if I can't have a 680i). I've always had Abit boards in the past, but I'm not really bothered about the brand.

cheers

Graham

Ahh, well, I've found an Asus P5N32-E SLI nVidia 680i board that was the last one in stock so I've had that. Should do the job.
