Default what mobo

For AMD sli I know the most reccomended option is the DFI lanparty, but can it actually fit 2 of these, with gpu watercooloing blocks? Are there any benifits of the A8N?

Thanks
-Maximilian

eww XFX anyways

with the new DFI NF4 SLI-DR EXPERT you can fit two NV5 which are approximately that size of the heatsink on the 7800GTX 512MB. and i dont think any water block is going to be that big.

depends on how big the water block is, just measure lol. the sound card wont be that big and obviously it wont need a fan on it or anything.
