    nForce4 for Intel is out - but there's not many motherboards around for it yet...

    you can also get SLI boards for P4 Xeon's of course

    Game support isn't a big deal... Poor drivers from nvidia are what kills it.

    Why would anybody want to run a P4 SLI rig? SLI is primarily advantageous for games. P4's get killed in games by far less expensive AMD A64 systems. Unless your goal in life is to spend as much as possible for an Intel gaming system that is a weak gamer compared to the AMD stuff (which is very commonly available also) I just don't get it.

    Do intelligent people ever have a goal like that? I don't believe there is a market for such a machine. Nobody would buy it which is why their isn't any. Believe me, with the number of Intel fans out there if they thought anybody would want such a thing the motherboard manufacturers would be selling them everywhere (just like they are doing with the AMD S939).

    Butcher;

    It's the drivers which offer the support.
