Hi All, Long time lurker first time poster. I have done a lot of research to try and build my own computer but am stuck on the motherboard selection and how it affects my video card selection ... and vica-versa. My budget is $1200 and I am building it so I can play Vanguard with my husband when it comes out. I know it will be a Core2Duo E6600 (2.4 ghz) and it will have 2 gigs of DDR2-800 RAM. With that in mind I have run into a sort of road block when it comes to video cards. I want a motherboard that will allow me to take full advantage of the duo core CPU and full advantage of the dual channel RAM, but I don't quite think it's worth it to use 2 video cards. Am I missing out by not going the SLI/crossfire route? I am thinking I want a pretty high end single card. Sorry, I am rambling... anyways, which motherboard/videocard should I use to have optimal preformance with my CPU and RAM choices?
