Question What cheap motherboards support SLI and RAID???

The name says it,
What cheap but reliable motherboards are out there that support SLI and RAID? I will be using and intel quad Q6600, 2x 160 gig Western Digital HDD's, and 2 GeForce 8800 GT's.

Any input would be awesome!

Thanks!

Go to newegg.com, search their motherboards, and then make your search options for those who have 2x pcie slots and support s-ata raid drives.

exactly, there are some that have one PCI-e x16 and x1 Electrical slot, and there are some that use Crossfire

but 680i's, 750i's, and 780i's based chipsets are your only options

personal recommendation of from each chipsets

750i: Asus P5N-D
680i: eVGA 680i A1
780i: Asus P5N-T Deluxe??
