We already know that the best nVidia has to offer in the motherboard area, n680i chipset based mobos, cost around $270. Reports say that motherboards which support AMD's 4x4 technology will be even more expensive at $300.

The $300 number comes from Inquirer, so you might want to take it with a grain (pinch, bucket?) of salt. The number is considerably lower than some predicted, but it's still a hefty sum to give away just for the motherboard.

To think that you also need to cash out for two dual core chips and four video cards...well, it makes my wallet hurt. I still remember when I bought my DFI nForce4 SLI motherboard, and gave over $170 for it, which seemed like a fortune at the time...

Of course, these products are aimed at hardcore enthusiasts, but it somehow it seems it's always the highend motherboards which have the best support and stability, so everyone ends up using them anyway.
