So it doesn't matter what slot the 2nd card goes in PCI E x16 or PCI E x1 because U bridge them?

OK now does anyone have any suggestions for a descent case that has good ventilation. Would like to stay $50 or under.
Thanks Again

No, that is not how it works. You need to get an SLI motherboard in order to use SLI. An SLI mobo will have two PCI-e x16 slots.

Here is an example, however, I would not worry about SLI:

Thank U everyone for all the advice. I have narrowed my mobo choice to 2 styles.
I'm going with either the
*ASUS P5LD2 Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 945P BOARD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16813131538
Or
*ASUS P5LD2-VM Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 945G BOARD
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=247006

I had my mind made up on the first one when I ran across the VM model. Can anyone tell me the difference? I see that the VM has integrated graphics which is of no concern to me as I am adding a video card but it is cheaper. Is there that big a difference in a 945P and a 945G chipset? Why would a mobo with integrated graphics be cheaper? I must be overlooking something.
Thanks again for all your help, I really appreciate it.

Does it matter what type of PS I use. If it's ATX is that good enough. What's a good one for under a hundred bucks? How many fans should I use in the case? Can anyone help me here?
I would really appreciate it.
