Hi there - I currently have a computer which has been upgraded over the years and now has an asus geforce 560 ti graphics card but a really old motherboard and processor (q6600)

I want to make a decent gaming pc that will give me good fps with all the settings on high etc

I have about £500 to spend - what I want to know is this - I'm going to buy a new motherboard and processor (I prefer to stay with intel and do a core i5 at least) -

Is it worth me buying another asus geforce 560 ti and a motherboard so that I can use it in SLI? If so, do you have any advice on which motherboard would be suitable?

Alternatively I could buy a new graphics card and motherboard and forget the SLI - would that be better or worse value for money ?

Any suggestions or advice would be gratefully appreciated!

Many thanks,
