Now someone else must have a SLI-capable board available...
I'll be doing a build log and posting pics.

John,

That's awesome man.

Don't feel cheap 3.0Charlie. If we can get a few people to pony up a few dollars or spare parts, we can make this happen. While I don't expect to be disappointed, if we come up short, I'll increase my $50 to meet you halfway on the E8400.

This is a whole HWC community effort and no one person has to give a great deal, but if we all come together, we can make something really special happen for this soldier.

Our members won't let this project fail in any way, of that I am sure.

BALISTX, it might be a good idea to update the parts list with an SLI capable motherboard (either/or from the EP45-DS3L) that you feel would be a suitable candidate, if we end up with another 9600 GT. Just a thought.

Listen, I'll donate 2 x EVGA 8800 GTs if you prefer. Let me know.

I can't believe I'm this late into this thread lol. I fully support our Armed Forces.

Where do I ship these to? Would it be selfish to request someone pick up the shipping?
