I was ready to buy the M2N32 SLI untill i happened upon the Crosshair.
The only thing holding me back is that I'm reconsidering building a Core 2 Duo rig. They are faster than X2's but more expensive and I don't know much about them. I haven't built an Intel system since the original P4's launched so long ago. But speed is a big thing for me.
I think that all things considered the Crosshair is the best bet plus it's newly released the M2N32 will be 6 months old in a month.
I'll be making my final decision within the week so If i get it before you decide what to get I'll let you know how everything goes.

Excellent! I definitely want to hear how it goes!
If you dont mind me asking.....where did you buy it from and how much did you pay?
I see ZZF has it for $245, still a bit high for me.

I'll post comparison results in 3dmark03, 05, & 06 once it's set up in addition to overclocking results. I'm hoping the x2 4200 i've got is very overclocking friendly If can get any where near what the guys at legit reviews got here ~~> http://www.legitreviews.com/article/373/1/ I'll be a happy camper.
Wish me luck

I love it as it helps keep my kids out with the door and the locks there are no exposed parts that a 2 or 1 year old can stick things in, my case is in a PC tray that's built into my desk.
I may have to upgrade my case at some point but no time soon not after all the work I just did with wire routing in this one. If you click on the other picture of the case's inards on the page i listed above you can see the HDD bay is flush with the back of the 5.25" bays which means the HDD itself will stick out about 2.5". I thought about taking out the front mounted fan and mounting my HDDs with the two back hole screws but the bay itself has been made so that only the front mount holes on the hdd can be used.
As cramped as my system is everything is staying pretty cool:
I've had it up for about 2 days countinuously right now.
