Thanx guys, I think I will go over these sugestions and mix and match untill I find something that i like. Without this help I would still be lost in motherboards because there are just so many different brands.
As long as my gaming preference was primarily games that supported SLI, I would go that route. It's the stronger gaming solution in most games. People who buy a single card planning to add a second almost never do so because GPUs evolve so quickly and there is only a 6-month window (about) to add a second before they disappear or become impractically expensive or become obsolete by other newer single cards.
