Hey all just thinking what are your thoughts on my new system as I originally planned to spend just £600 but got a bit of a windfall in work and I also really wanted the SSD hard drive and a cinema system link up.

If you run 2 cards, then it is called as Crossfire - ATI specific tech and SLI is Nvidia specific tech for the same...

Your right I didn't realise how big an impact that would make on the system so i'll send the mobo back and get a x16 x16 one, would like the dolby 5.1 surround built in too though. Could you suggest me a good mobo that covers this?
