I want to buy an upgrade for my computer (Right now I've got a s939 with an AMD FX-55 with 2Gb of DDR Ram)
but I've got 2x8800GTX SLI'd, and I'm having a little trouble choosing the right motherboard?

I'd be buying the upgrade from a local shop - Forcom - I dont want it to be too expensive, and I'd want to buy an E8400 with 4Gbs of memory. The problem I'm having is that this shop only has an ASUS P5N-E SLI and a ASUS Striker II Extreme, and some other cheapass or really expensive motherboards which all support SLI.

This is the page which displays all the s775 motherboards they have

I'd really want to buy it from this shop because they've got the cheapest prices I've seen so far here in Belgium

  • Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 -> €170 or ~$270 (They're usually around €220 or $350 here in Europe)
  • Zalman CNPS9700-CU LED -> €55 or ~$90
    And then either
  • Asus P5N-E SLI -> €80 or ~$127
  • Corsair 4096MB,DDR2 6400,SDRAM,4-4-4-12 DHX -> €90 or ~$140
    or
  • ASUS Striker II Formula -> €225 or ~$360
  • Corsair 4096MB,XMS2-8500,DDR2,1066MHz, 5-5-5-18, Dominator -> €120 or ~$190

    Which motherboard should I get, or does anyone have any other (Cheaper) shops in Belgium?

    Cheers

    Side note: Is there something like Newegg.com in Europe? >_>
