More about what motherboard
  1. There are no good SLI mobos under $140, you're looking at around $200.

    My recommendation would be a P45 mobo, better stability and overclocking.

    Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R is only $105AR.

    When your video card is no longer performing adequately, sell it and upgrade.
  2. u would have to get a nvidia 700 series chipset...such as 750i or 780i or 790i ...
    But u would have to spend a little more...
    And do post ur specs...
  3. but if u r planning to buy the graphic card then u shuld get the mobo tat theanimal said...but the one wit 2 pcie slot.. GA-EP45-UD3P and get the ati cards for crossfire..
  4. My recommendation is to stay away from MSI.
    Get Asus or Gigabyte preferably.
  5. Depending on the specs.. SLI or crossfire.

    THe UD3P gigabyte will be your best bet, or the P5Q PRO ASUS. for Crossfire,

    you'll need a little more for SLI. Just to do SLI you will need to have atleast $185.00 before m-i-r on the evga 750i, and on the ASUS sli's are over $200 mobo's.

    so think twice on SLI..
    well, there is one that i found, but it hasn't had much of a good review yet to be seen..

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131232 $134.99 so + shipping looking at around $145.00
  6. Also, is there a big performance difference with 800mhz ram from 667 ram?
    You guys think i should get a new mobo? I am still deciding...
    Here are my specs:

    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHZ
    Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT
    Win XP Professional 32Bit
    4 gigs of Ocz RAM clocked down to 667
    Maxtor 500 Gig HD
    Asus P5nsli Motherboard
    Samsung 1680x1250 22" Widescreen monitor
    Thermalake 500 Watt Power Supply

    In the future i will probably get a faster cpu and another 9800 gt for sli
