Two full-bandwidth PCI-Express x16 slots with SLI support, one PCI-Express x4 slot and three PCI expansion slots;

If you flavor a better designed board but are willing to sacrifice the extra 4 phase power, then the Asus M2N-SLi Deluxe is by far the better choice ;)
or input you need to purchase the optional card that plugs into the onboard header

We will be reviewing some 570 SLI mobos this month to find out whether the myth is true or not.

I though that current Nvidia cards aren't able to run games with AA and HDR both on at the same time, at a high resolution and acceptable frame rates... Unless the games in test uses that 'special approach' to beat the restraint.

Here is the WiFi card specs:

The main difference between the 570 SLI and 590 SLI is the number of PCI-E lanes available. Each PCI-Express x16 interconnect only has 8 lanes when using SLI mode on the 570 SLI. You can read more about the differences here: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2006/05/23/nvidia_nforce_5/1.html
