Question recommendations plz............

need a motherboard that can handle 2 8800gt's. i know its called sli but there are so many available i thought i would come here to see what people think.

preferrably the board will also be socket 775 as the person is fascinated with core 2 quad line of processors.

i have the cards and everything else but the memory. once i find a board i will start chasing memory.

thx for advice

EVGA 750i FTW. This board supports SLI at 16x instead of 8x. The board is $187.90 after $20 MIR at Direct Canada.

Smile thx ..........

i looked at the reviews and it seems to be one that nearly all the reviewers liked. i ordered it from ncix as its on for $8 or so less and free shipping for the entire order to boot.
