Default quick question

i ordered an asus sli mobo for like $120 and the evga geforce 6800gs for $205. do you think its a better idea to get the combo of the evga sli mobo and the 7800gt on new egg? the evga mobo doesnt say it supports the X2 amd. will that be a problem if i want to go dual core in the future?
