ASUS Maximus Formula - ASUS brings us Intels X38 chipset in the form of the ASUS Maximus Formula. This is also ASUS latest in the Republic of Gamers lineup. ASUS touts the Maximus Formula as The Top of Game Board Today.
The ASUS Maximus Formula is an extremely powerful tweaking and overclocking DDR2 motherboard that has exhibited tremendous stability for us. While it is part of the Republic of Gamers line from ASUS, it would be better branded part of the Republic of Hardware Enthusiasts. At $250 it is far from cheap (Newegg / ZipZoomFly), but this is a motherboard that could easily be part of an long upgrade path and probably fit into your current upgrade path much more economically than a DDR3 motherboard. And this board does support Yorkfield processors and AMDs ATI CrossFireX which has recently become that much more inviting.
