Okay, I am wondering about MOBO. I was first looking at the Asus p6t deluxe v2, but after comparing it to the standard P6T i am wondeirng if the extra cash is worth it. I do have Raid 0 planned for the future.
Also will i better just as well off getting Ram at 1333 or 1600. It seems like both of these boards will only see them at 1333 without over clocking.
If you're only including 2 cards in SLI/Crossfire (which at this point should be Crossfire, as ATI is killing nVidia), then either board would work. The only difference is the speed of the 3rd PCIe slot, and the deluxe has 2 extra SATA ports and 2 extra USB ports. I don't relaly think that's worth the extra cash.
RAM should be 1333 mhz CL 7. This will run $100. There isn't a noticeable difference between 1333 vs. 1600 in most cases, so save a little money.
