Thats about $1600 or so. You can go with Two Video Cards and maybe even up to a FX-57 If you feel like it.

***I dont know what power supply to pick as I dont see them note if its 20 or 24pin and PCI-E boards take 24 pin if I'm correct someone else may want to help him here.

from previous threads, dont u think the DFI is better? or am i wrong?
Performance wise that you will see the MSI and DFI are the same. It a matter of personal perference. I happen to like having the 4 PCI slots that the MSI. The reason DFI is very popular in many places is because it is the best board out there for overcloking. The thing is the MSI board is a GREAT overclokers to. You would have to be VERY good to max out the MSI potential. If you one of the very few people that can manage this then the DFI board is a better choise. For 99% of people the MSI would be just as good if not better sometimes.

well nvidia seems to be pushing on the hole sli thing so why not right? =D if i got the money LOL... wow im so happy bout htis... im very poor now im getting a big check xD
getting 2 7800GTX would push your budget over $3000 but if you want a motherboard that can do it in the future then I recommend

MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum SLI Socket 939
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130487

This inceases the total to 2646 still well lower then 3000

and could i get a 600 watt power supply?
The 600watt PSU I recommend is

OCZ PowerStream OCZ600ADJ ATX12V 600W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...104-153&depa=0

This brings your total to ~$2730 still with in your budget

in my opioun yes IF you can find 1gb sticks with good timing which is hard to do but the ones I listed is 2-3-2-5 which is GREAT timing. 4 sticks will definally run in 2T. With 2 stick there a good chance you could pull of 1T which better.

But is it 2 6800 Ultras with 256MB or with 512MB? I heard that the 512MB one runs faster probably just a rumor but maybe its true.

Not true. Acturally from what I seen the 512mb ones ram clocked 50mhz slower then the 256mb ones.
