Get one that is easy to OC with, just in case you decide to try it out. 100-150 bucks won't kill you.

Ok, you guys convinced me. DFI it is. I see it has dual PCI-e 16x ports. Can I just use it in single mode for now with a single card. I don't want to spend mega bucks on a video card let alone two of them.

One other question. What is the purpose of the dual LAN ports?
