    I doubt he'd be going to the SLI route though. He also needs a monitor since his is 15' 1024 x 768.
  5. actualy i do plan on doing sli plus i need a upgrade path...i dont need a monitor YET because i got about 5 at selveral different resolution one of them is a crt another is a slim vga that got a DVI converter on it and the rest is occupied by a pc

    Thanks, I totally forgot about that. He will need a good 650W PSU then.
