I actually don't have a SLI motherboard...

So the 8800GTS 512MB revision is the way to go?

Is it one of these, and what is the difference between the two?

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N841-A3 GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N841-AR GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Thanks for the help, guys Was going to buy the 8800GTX but if one of these is a better card I'll go with it. (I've been using eVGA for a while, but any brand is fine)

you don't need an SLI board for hd3870 x2

(its Crossfire for ATi btw )

you can run ATI cards on nVidia Chipsets and vice versa
