I'm looking for a new mobo to replace my s---ty intell one. I want to drop (2)5870's in it in cross fire eventually but for now want to use (2) 4850's. I am going to use my current q6600 but will upgrade that later also. I'l like a min of 8 sata ports (or a good recommendation for a cheep raid controller that does not have s---ty reviews) Also i guess I dont fully understand DDR3 aside fromt hat I think its better lol. This sytem will be used for gamiing and video editing. Any recomendations for a mobo?

Intel Quad Core Kentsfield 2.4Ghz Q6600 CPU
Ultra 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Dual Channel 2X1024

Why would you even consider two HD 5870's at almost $400 a pop? If that's something you have in mind for the future, scrap the LGA775 system altogether. Sell it while it still has some value & move up to a Core i5 / i7 build.
