the mobo is compatible with any card - nvidia or ati, so long as the card is PCI-Express. And no, it is not an SLI board. if you want one, so you can run two video cards simultaneously (SLI), that requires a different mobo.

If u dont want the Radeon X800 XL, i would suggest the geforce 6600 GT, or if u have the cash, the geforce 6800 GT.

I will be getting the Asus A8N-SLI. PCIexpress graphics, SLI (2 GPUs), GeForce 6600GTs if you are on a budget or 2 6800 Ultras if you got the cash to burn and want to game well into the future.

Mobo= $180
6600s= $200
6800s= $$$$

Try Newegg or MonarchComputers

most ppl here wouldnt recommend asus mobos, especially not for AMD machines. we would say go for the DFI Lanparty nForce 4 SLI board. O yea, im pretty sure that all SLI boards are pci-express.

SLI is very expensive, I'd just stick with a single 6800 gt

Don't go for 2 6600gt's as they don't perform as well as a 6800gt for the same price.

I have to say I really like the X800xl.

If you go for getting a 6800gt, consider getting a sli board, and when you want to upgrade you can get anouther 6800gt cheaply, that will give you a nice boost in performance.

I also recomend the dfi boards.
