OUCH!! the GA-X48-DS4 would have rocked but now im pretty much limited to 750i 780i and the 600's
PS: this might be a newb question, but if i had a PCI tv tuner would it work with a PCIe port?

If this early benchmark for 4870 is real, you might consider Crossfire as a viable alternative to sli. X38/48 supports crossfire as 2x PCIE2.0 16x, which you can think of as 2x PCIE32x. 4870 is to be released at the end of may, which is this month.

It's good for a Nvidia chipset motherboard. 780i is better. Ideally, use iIntel chipset boards such as x38/48 for performance, and p35 for value.

A PCI tv tuner plugs into PCI slot, not PCIE.
