why do you need SLI if your not going to game?

and make sure if you do SLI get an SLI ready psu.

If you're not a gamer and you don't plan on overclocking, then there is no reason what so ever to build a SLI / DFI MOBO system.

SLI is ment for gaming. DFI is the best MOBO for those that Overclock. Don't spend the money for features that you don't intend to fully use.

When ever I get a new client that asks me to build them a custom PC the first question I always ask them is, "What do you intent on doing with it?" Then I recommend something that will only suite their needs and is futureproof.
