it's $600 but you can find it for like $570 if your lucky.

Why not sli 2 9600 gt 512's One member (Otis) is showing some very impressive benchmarks for 3dmark06 with them. They are also alot cheaper then 2 8800 gts g92's.

Go with a 780i board if you decide to do this.

Default Re: Asus vs Nvidia Mobo..

so?... the NVIDIA motherboard and what about the graphcis card?

Should I get the NVIDIA motherboard in the link and one 9800GX2?

The 9800GX2 is the same price as 2x 8800GTS cards.. roughly..

Yeah thats what I would do.

But if you don't plan to add a second card. I'd look into the Maximus Formula board.
