Is there such a thing?

Upgrading my rig once again and been looking at skt 775 boards (have a QX6850 on the way) however I cant seem to find a board that supports both SLI and DDR3. It seems to be one or the other. Is it only Crossfire boards supporting this? Also why is Intel supporting ATI? Surly they dont want to help out AMD? Or do they have a contract?

Any help would be cool

I am under the impression that CrossFire can be enabled in the drivers, so supporting CrossFire is pretty easy as long as you have two PCIe x8 slots or x16 slots. SLI is a bit different critter, I think.

But, I COULD be all wet, as I haven't kept up on that as well as I probably should have.
