Re: Mobo question
It's a good idea sometimes. It really depends on the budget. if your building a computer for less than 700 or so i would say SLI and definitely crossfire is not worth it becuase the motherboards are more expensive. The 650i and 680i's can be had for a decent price these days except they don't overclock as well as their 750i counterparts.
You also need a better power supply and better cooling to handle dual gpu's as well.
For some people such as myself who have a little more money to spend my parts are all great recommended parts because they overclock and are reputable but my 8800GT does SLI very well and once the cards go down to 100-120 used i will jump on a second one.
