Hello folks, I'm currently looking for a better motherboard because i want to get a second gpu.
My current Motherboard: ASUSTeK M5A78L-M LX
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2 x 8gb sticks
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T (6 core 2.80ghz)
GPU: EVGA SC GTX 760

I don't really have an exact budget but preferably less than $200

Any and all help would be appreciated!

To use a better motherboard, he should get an ATX case if he doesn't already have one.
