Question Good GPU/MOBO Solution

Hey guys, I'm back.

I've already started working on my 2nd build and need some advice.

I've got most of the PC sorted out but I'm a little uncertain about my GPU/Mobo.

I've been thinking about an EVGA 780i with 2x 9600GT in SLI.

I don't want to spend too much, like GX2s are out of the question, but do you guys have any recommendations?

EDIT: I guess I'll post my build just for kicks...

Go with two 9600gt's and a 750i FTW board, because you have 9600gt's you can't Tri-SLI and thats the only difference between the 780i and 750i FTW

OK I changed the Mobo and Ram so it would work with it.

Is the lack of PCI-E 2.0 a big deal? I doubt it, but I'm curious...

Nah, no card can take advantage of the x16 yet alone of the PCI-e 2.0 interface
