There are dozens of motherboards that will work. How much are you willing to spend? Do you wanna use DDR2 or DDR3 memory? Do you have a decent power supply?

It does not matter how much it costs , I just want a very good motherboard and I would like to use DDR3 .
I have a Coolermaster UCP 700W. I would also like SLI support.

If money is no object, why aren't you buying one decent video card instead of wasting your money on two?

Good luck finding an AMD board that supports AM3 CPUs, DDR3 RAM & SLi. If you insist on two video cards, you're most likely going to have to switch to ATI Radeons & run them in Crossfire.

If that's not to your liking & you insist on nVidia & SLi, you're gonna have to go with an Intel setup.

The 2 cards (Gtx 260 core 216) that I have are from my previous computer so I want to use them and i'm gonna buy the gtx 285 later this year.

Is it possible that I use the Asus M4A79T Deluxe but than I don't have the sli support .

What is the big difference between a motherboard with sli support and one without sli support ?

"The 2 cards (Gtx 260 core 216) that I have are from my previous computer so I want to use them and i'm gonna buy the gtx 285 later this year."

Why would you go from two GTX-260s to a single GTX 285?
That would be quite a downgrade.

To wait for the DirectX 11 cards would be much wiser. They should arrive at around the same time as Windows 7...October, I believe.

"Is it possible that I use the Asus M4A79T Deluxe but than I don't have the sli support ."

Nope. You'll have to limit yourself to a single nVidia card or switch to Intel as jam mentioned.

"What is the big difference between a motherboard with sli support and one without sli support ?"

SLI-capable boards are usually built around nVidia chipsets (nForce). However, all that's required to run SLI on the Intel x58 chipset is nVidia's blessing...lol.

Socket 939
Dual core Opteron 185 @ 3.2GHz on A8N32-SLI Deluxe
4GB of CL2 PC3200
2x 8800GTS in SLI

X-Fi Titanium for PCI-E
Vista x64.
