Yep you just need a card that is a Master and one that is just Sli ready. Well im a ATI fan and thats how it is with ATI not sure about nvidia, I dont like Nvidias drivers much so i tend to stay away from them.

And the the one motherborad Asus, that they showd ya people have had some probs with it not being compatable with C2D's untell they up date the BIOS. But thats on older release versions they may all be up to date now. It also isent the best i was looking up on reviews of all the Asus Socket 775s and theres one that was a head more in the benchmarks, and i think its prity much the same overclock ability. Cant member the board there was 3

no, i decided not to go with SLI anymore... i decided its not worth it. maybe if i build another computer in the future i might use SLI, but not yet.

as for the motherboard, i guess ill take that chance, since i have noticed all motherboards have their qwerks...

Intel Core 2 DUO E6600 "LGA775 Conroe" 2.40GHz (1066FSB) - Retail

G.Skill 2GB DDR2 HZ PC2-6400 (2x1GB) CAS4 Dual Channel Kit
