That 580 PSU will handle 2 8800's? And They don't have GT's in stock on newegg ; ;. Should I get 2 340 or 2 640? Thanks

I like the Ip35, before i bought my AM2 setup i was seriously considering going for a C2Duo and the mobo i was going to get was the Abit Ip35, read some really good things about it. I'm with you though, I don't really like Asus. I think it's overrated.

Asus are quite good, they make some of the best mobos out there!

Anyway you certainly can't go wrong with the IP35...but I recommend the IP35-Pro.

Look around other sites for the 8800GT...trust me you want this card over the older 8800GTS.
