Read the sticky on SLI to decide for yourself. I personally am fine with non-SLI. Your mobo choice also depends on if you want to overclock as well. So,

Really Good Overclocking:
DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

No Overclocking To Moderate Overclocking:
GIGABYTE GA-K8NF-9 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
DFI nF4 Ultra-Infinity ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
MSI K8N Neo4-F ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

If you do decide to buy the DFI ultra-d that Elbatrop poste and then later when you decide that you need SLi, you can mod that board to accept it.

Abit and Asus are good as well. The reason I didnt recommend them is because of the experiences I have had with them. I have seen the Asus SLi boards (I dont know if it would be the same for non-SLI) and their chipset fans dying a lot.

And as for Abit, I just havent had any experience with them, nor done much research on them.

On the other hand, I've done more research on DFI and MSI, and I own a Gigabyte.

Well i would go with a cheap sli board for future proof. I mean what if right now u buy a badass video card. And later on it gets cheap and u add a second one and ur getting double performance marks there. I say sli i mean 30 bucks more for futer profing is good.

i wouldnt go sli. it dosent give you double performance because they havent perfected it yet and no game really needs sli yet cause just a normal 7800GT or GTX kicks serious ***. i would just go with the Lanparty UT Ultra-D because if you dont want to overclock and you change your mind in the future its right there if you decide otherwise

You can no longer mod the DFI LanParty Ultra-D to perform SLI. The DFI company has discovered this and has made all future Ultra-D main boards unmoddable to SLI. If you want to go SLI in the future, there is no way that you can buy a non-SLI board. They have also prevented this buy not supplying an SLI - bridge essential for SLI. *NOTE* The SLI bridge does not come with the video card- it comes with the motherboard.

Just curious but do u know how much the bridge costs by itself im thinking probably half the motherboard's price.
