SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, watching movies, surfing the internet
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, PSU, HDDs, PCIe wireless, PCI sound, GPUs, i7 930

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Mobo needs to support 3 gpus - 2 in sli w/ my 8800GT doing physx.
Thanks for replying. I forgot to mention that i need 7 sata ports. Having 6gbs sata is nice but not mandatory. As far as sound goes, i've pretty much conceded that i'll end up using onboard due to the lack of expansion slots on boards w/ 3 x16 slots.
