Default Re: First PC Build Any advice?

Will this build be able to run two graphic cards sli?
If not what changes would I have to make to make that possible?
(See parts above with either bfg power supply or the one trotter posted)
Thank you

No. The motherboard only has a single PCI-E x16 slot. You need a different motherboard, one that can run either SLI or CrossFireX.

This board will run SLI (requires Nvidia chipset):

Wow thanks again. Can either power supply run two cards sli?

And instead of hooking up the monitor through the graphics card (just checking that im reading this right) i can use the hdmi output on the board?

The Antec has one 6-pin connector, the BFG has a 6-pin and a 6+2 pin connector. You would need one adapter to run two 9800's (if they only use a single 6-pin each... I didn't check).

No, you will have to hook up the monitor through the graphics card and not the onboard. The onboard will be disabled when the card is put in. You can run up to two monitors through the card, though.
