Im sorry if it seems like im gettin on ur back (cos im not) but that MOBO is only CF, and not SLi, compatible.

Wow my mistake. It was suppose to be the P35-DS3P. But I guess it's not supported with SLi either?

SKimmed over the post so not sure if this is answered already but
Sli only works with 2 identical cards eg 8800gts + 8800gts , A 8600 wont work with a 8800 ,
AND besides that the benefits of sli are really destoyed by the price of it.To put it quite simply Unless youve money to burn or REALLY need the best graphics possible SLI IS NOT WORTH IT

E6300 Core 2 Duo
2 Gbs OCZ PLatinum 800Mhz
250 Gb Western Digital
OCZ Modsteam 450W
7900GT Gainward
Flux Capacitor....SWEEEET
