    What 939 Board (I was waiting for DFI)

    I was going to get the new DFI board but I cannot wait any longer as my current board has turned its toes up. Can someone please suggest a board.

    I contacted a number of retailers and they said it would not be around until the end of next month!!!!!!!

    The board needs to be SLI and have reasonable onboard sound.
    Specs:

    Q6600 G0, Thermalright Ultra 120, ABIT IP35 PRO, 4GB Corsair DDR2, Trusty old Tagan 480u, BFG 8800 GTS 512, Samsung F1 750 GB.

    My MSI platinium is rather nice. Northbridge fan is a bit noisy unless you turn it down tho (a zalman fanmate is now doing that rather).

    I have now narrowed it down to the MSI K8N SLI Platinum PCI-E or the Asus what would people say?
