So hi guys, I need help picking a motherboard....

I have chosen to get a ASrock N68C because this supports DDR2 - DDR3 and supports UCC, so this seems good...

I was wondering can someone advise me on a better motherboard with the following...

> HAS to support DDR2 800 - DDR3 MAX

> MUST have UCC/ACC AND OVERCLOCKING

> MUST HAVE SLI

and here comes my main question, if a motherboard has 2 PCIe X16 slots WITHOUT SLi can I still plug in 2 CLI cards without suing SLI and still get performance of two, because I have a GEFORCE 8600 GT AND A GT240


thanks all........

More about : mobo pls

You can not SLI two different cards like that. 8600GT can only SLI with 8600. I dont think that GT240 supports SLI. You have not told us what CPU you are using so I can not recommend motherboard!

alright heres my humble opinion
if you want a good mobo with an average price go with a asus p6x58D premium
its very reliable, intel 1366pin ddr3 for I7
$320 Australian dollars

3 x PCIe 2.0 x16
1 x PCIe x1
2 x PCI

so yeh you could 3 way SLI or cf

Yes there is but the motherboard is not great http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... You can only use one DDR std at a time so either DDR2 or DDR3 (makes it pointless and limits the amount of sticks you can use)
