Just because your getting an SLi board that doesnt mean you HAVE to get an nvidia card let a long 2 of them. You can get any card to go in the pci-e slot but not 2 ATI cards. I heard a lot of people say that card is rubbish. why dont u just buy one good card?

I dont know dollars only GBP but have a look at the 6800GS or ATI X800XT something around that (sorry if they are over budget). have a look around and post links here.

ya the 6800gs, 7600gt are above his budget.

i suggest this card.

ppl around here seem to have a problem with XFX, but the newegg reviews seem to be good, so i guess not too many ppl had problems with this card. it looks pretty good.

if you really want eVGA (ppl here swear by them) then get this one. its a bit cheaper. but the memory is quite a bit slower than the XFX one. also, the xfx has dual dvi unlike this one.

if you can increase your budget to $170-$190 or so you'll get great cards there.

btw i think this is the first time i heard someoen trying ot put 2 7300gs' in SLI. lol.. can those cards even do SLI?! definitely do not do that!

Don't be fooled by the 7300, a 6600 performs better then that.
