I currently own a Crosshair 2 Formula which is broken and I need to replace. Recently, I bought a Phenom 2 CPU which I wouldn't like to throw away.

Recent Crosshairs are based (as opposed to the Rampage series) on chipsets that are certified for AMD Crossfire.

The problem is that I have 3 SLi cards I absolutely don't want to change with AMD card(s) since I use 3D Vision, and I need NVidia.

If I buy a Crosshair 3 or 4 which is not SLi certified, will SLi still work? Else, could you suggest me a good gaming motherboard with AM3 socket and that works with 3-way SLi?

Thank you in advance.

[Edit] I'm asking this question because it seems Crosshair 2 is difficult to find among the market

Unfortunately, according to FAQ, this site is not about shopping recommendation. For the other part of the question, you need SLI certified motherboard. Good luck! – AndrejaKo Jan 5 '11 at 14:21
Actually, it's on top:"and it is not about … * videogames or consoles * websites or web services like Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress * electronic devices, media players, cell phones or smart phones, except insofar as they interface with your computer * a shopping or buying recommendation " – AndrejaKo Jan 5 '11 at 18:15
