I just upgraded my system, so I have a couple Geforce 8800 GTS 312mb cards lying around, and I was thinking about putting together a gaming rig for my sister.
So, what's a good LGA 775 mobo that suppots SLI? I'm probably going to throw a Q6600 in it, and those two 8800s, it'll be a bit of overkill for what she uses it for, but it beats having her bug me to use mine when she comes over.
Any suggestions you guys have for me would be much appreciated.
It'll have to be Nvidia chipset board. Either 750i or 780i. 790i cost a lot, and 600s have problems and are know as "ram killers." The only Intel board that support sli is the Skulltrial dual cpu board, which cost $600.
Since you said yourself the SLI is already overkill for what she will be doing with it, might as well get something cheap like an Asus P5N-E (650i) for ~120$MSI P6N SLI Platinum for ~135$. If you prefer something that is a bit more recent and could probably be reused when you "retire" some of your new components, you could get EVGA's 750i FTW for ~190$.
