Assuming you are going to re-use your case/ power supply/ hard drives etc etc then probably the best value system for SLi might be this new mb from MSI

MSI NF750-G55 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI $100

Visit the webpage for the board at

AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz $119

Patriot Viper 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 $85

So mb/cpu/ram for $305

The motherboard is fairly new so there arent any good reviews I could find . SLI is pretty new for AM3 so expect the drivers to be improving for a while .

i was wondering what the difference was between these memories and if it is worth the ten extra bucks
