Oh, and out of curiosity; why exactly are you after two 295s? I mean you can max pretty much any game with just one.

I am not, I am buying one atm.
Just want to keep the option open for the future, and better plan it now since I don't want to overhaul my entire pc just for sli lol.

Also, TV Tuners...

I am looking at Hauppauge HD-2250, TV Wonder HD 650...
All have mixed reviews - anyone know of one that works decently... or do the aforementioned cards work well as well?
- I love the remote of HD-2250 (the HD 650 has a terrible looking one)
[also do both cards capture HD (i.e. record?)]

go with this one,

Newegg.com - ASUS My Cinema-PHC3-100/NAQ/FM/AV/RC TV Tuner Card PCI Interface - TV Tuners & Video Devices

i have it and it's great. it records live tv. has a analog (unscrambled cable and over the air), fm, and digital tuner in it that works great with windows media center.

mmm, k.

Another question regarding the mobo/graphics/sound/tuner.

so using the same numeral classification (1) to (6) [see the first post of this thread]:

Can I hook up the two video cards in spots (3) which eats up (4) and (5) which eats up (6), using a flex bridge, and get (x1, x16, x16) or will I get (x1, x16, x8)?

[i want to know if I can have both the PCIe x16 and PCIe x1 can be free if I am going to run Quad SLI at x16,x16]
