:bounce: 

i have only 1 graphic card right now which don't have a sli connector (gt 240) and processor 1055t and i dn't wanna buy a 2 graphic card set is that possible to put 1 card in sli motherboard ?
i wanna buy 1 of these

GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 or
ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 or
ASUS M4A87TD EVO

which should be better

i'm thinking about asus m4a87td/usb3 mobo because it have only 1 pci exp x16 slot should i go with another motherboard ? they have 8 + 2 power phase this thing is little bit advanced in compare of this motherboard and maybe if i got some money i will go with double card

:wahoo: 

Best solution

a b B Homebuilt system
a b U Graphics card
a c 234 V Motherboard

My vote go for the ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AMD Motherboard over the other three.

1) None of the three motherboards support SLI, so you'll never need the second PCIe slot since you are runnning a Nvidia GT 240 graphics card...

2) The other two motherboards has the PCIe x16 running at x4, which makes it pretty much useless for dual cards anyways, so why not get a board with other PCI slots that can be utilized.
