hi havent purchased anything yet this is the spec the system was going to be:
NZXT LEXA BlackLine Blue Mid Tower Case With LCD
EVGA 750I FTW motherboard
896MB BFG Tech GTX 260 OC, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), Mem 1998MHz, GPU 590MHz, 192 Cores, 2x DL DVI/HDTV x 2 SLI
4GB (2x2GB) Corsair TwinX XMS2, DDR2 PC2-6400 (800), 240 Pins, Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 5-5-5-18
Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 2.40GHz
Samsung SpinPoint F1 1TB 32mb cache harddrive
750W TX Corsair PSU, single 12V rail, energy efficient, quiet & cool
22" HD Ready LCD
so as i have not purchased anything i can go either way SLI or Crossfire, will obviously need to change my Motherboard choice if i go with crossfire.
