Can you help me with a new mobo....(pls)

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........

  1. 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!
  2. Ohh sorry AMD II X3 445 I wnt to unlock also.
  3. DDR2 ram support, crossfire support, core unlocker http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130265
    Currently can not find a board with SLI and DDR2 support!
  4. Yes but I asked is there a mothebroard with DDR2 AND! DDR3 support?

    forget about crossfire and SLI....
  5. ????????????
  6. 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=N82E16813157204 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)
  9. OK thanks all I will get the ASrock N68C it has UCC too :-)
