  1. Does the motherboard support SLI?

    You should get the Nvidia 640GTS. It is a god price, and works fine. You state that you have a 24 inch monitor. Is its resolution 1920x1200?.
    If it is, the GTS is the minimum card you should get.

    I am in the same boat as you, and have to buy a new graphic card.

    I cant wait for the Nvidia 8900GTX (could be cancelled beacuse of the ATI fiasco), and Nvidia 8950GTX. Both these card are on the last Nvidia roadmap I have seen.

    The 8950GTX for SRP of 600dollars seems to be a good value.
  2. yes, i was talking at the EVGA 8800gts 640mb, if i buy it from newegg, do i still get the step up and other benefits?
