  1. I need a recommendation for the best SLI motherboards. Im getting one but I need some input as to whiich ones are the best. Also, I was wondering if the crossfire boards are better. Ive head that ATI videocards are better. So just let me know what you guys think.

    No right now I think that Nvidia has ATI beat by quite a bit with there 8 series cards. If you wanna do SLI I would get two 8800GT's. Though SLI only shows its true colors if you have a high res capable screen. So if you don't have one that can go amazingly high then just get one card. But here is my recommendation on a motherboard.

    This is the board that I have. Works great to. There is a board just like this one but with wireless if you want wireless. Since you didn't mention if you wanted AMD or Intel I put AMD cuse its the board I have and it supports SLI.

    I know this board is a bit above your budget before the rebate but THIS REVIEW absolutly glows about the MSI P6N Diamond. I recommend the MSI P6N Diamond.

    Normally I'd recommend ASUS pretty much without a second thought but they have been having quality control problems lately, so I can't do that.

    The Abit is a nice board but seems to fall mostly in the middle or at the bottom of the pack, so I will not be recommending that board.

    The EVGA seems to be on par with the ASUS Striker Extreme as far as overclocking goes and is the cheapest of the bunch if you don't include the Abit after rebate.

    I've assumed that you are going to spend a good chunk of change on your new computer and want the best performance. With that in mind I thought you'd want a motherboard with at least two 16X PCI-E slots for video. All of these boards have that. There are other Nvidia chipsets that support SLI but not at 16X each. The 650i chipset supports SLI at 8X each which is almost as fast as 16X but almost as fast isn't the same thing as just as fast.

    You stated that you want a 775 mobo, but you failed to mention which processor you have.
