Now what I plan to purchase in the very near future is a GTX 480 Super Clocked graphics card ( http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=015-P3-148... )and a Gelid Icy Vision VGA Video Card Cooler for it. I'd like to SLI both of the GTXs' together but the first issue i've run into is my motherboard.
Anyone have any recommendations for a motherboard that can not only take the memory that I have but have enough slots to hold my soundcard, both GTX's and the room to hold the card cooler and that it can take my processor.
These are two motherboard that I was looking at but im still not quite sure.
None of those boards support SLI.
Also you mentioned that you want to get a GTX 480 and SLI it,you mean that you want to pair it with your GTX 470 ? if so then its no possible,because the cards have to be the same.
It will hold the sound card fine (it's used in a PCI-E x1 slot right? If so then it will work), with the GELID Icy Vision you might need to put them in the first and third PCI-E x16 slots as the cooler is slightly bigger than a dual slot.
