Hi there, right im trying to build a budget gaming rig for about £650 and am looking for a motherboard for < £90 that supports both an Intel core i5 750 and Nvidia SLI beacuse planning to buy another gtx 460 in the future instead of buying a brand new single card.

are there any good cheap motherboards out there that can support this as I can find mobos that support crossfire but options for SLI seem to be thin on the ground!

More about : socket 1156 sli

ASUS P7P55D-E Pro is my recommendation or you can pick up the EVGA P55 SLI 132-LF-E655-KR.

Can you link where you are buying from so we can see what options you have available to you?

Most of the cheaper mobo's support crossfire, do you think i would just be better to get a 1gb 5830 instead of the 768mb gtx 460 or should i just fork out the extra money for the motherboard!

I Know i listed those websites but if there are any ceaper alternatives I would probably buy from there

Will that evga board fit two dual slot cards though? space looks a little tight but looks fairly good :D 

Yes that's what it's made for just make sure you have a case with very good air-flow.
If you look closely you'll see pci-x1 slots inbetween the x16 ones.
