a sli capable mobo.

it's really not that hard.

just 1 with multiple pci-x slots.

I like ASROCK, ASUS, EVGA, MSI, higher end boards. ASROCK provides features for a budget though, and still great quality.

On a side note, you need a bigger SSD for Windows. 60 gig absolute minimum, 120 is plenty. 32 simply is not big enough, even with the most meticulously maintained system. You will want to install some programs on the SSD, for pure speed reasons, like your antivirus software for example. My SSD with Win 7 64 bit hovered right around 35 gig, and it took work to keep it that low. Honestly, 32 gig is simply not enough.
