The Asrock Penryn1600 SLIX3-WiFi is a good budget friendly nForce 680i SLI board with a lot of features under its belt:
ASrock motherboards are inexpensive, and generally well enough built. The Asrock Penryn 1600SLI X3-WiFi motherboard breaks this mold somewhat by offering consumers a $125 platform with a bevy of multi-videocard, integrated wireless networking and quad-core Intel processor support. The Penryn1600SLI X3-WiF motherboard is built on nVidia’s nForce 680i SLI chipset, and as you may have guessed this platform supports Intel ‘penryn’ quad core, 45nm ‘yorkfield’ and dual core ‘wolfdale’ processors.
In all other respects the Asrock Penryn 1600SLI X3-WiFi motherboard is a typical socket 775 offering; it has every feature under the sun you’ll possibly need already integrated. Par for the course for Intel motherboards in this day and age. The 802.11g wireless LAN/AP card is a nice touch, so is the potential of running 3-way nVidia SLI for a kick in gaming performance!
