      Hate to break it to you but that motherboard doesn't support SLI

      It does support Crossfire which is only for ATi based cards.

            The 9800GT is just a rebadged card. I posted an article about it a while back, but they pretty much just slapped a new sticker on and hoped it would sell better with the higher number in the name

              rebagged or not im liking it so far :) 85-145 FPS in PR pending on where im at and whats going on around me :) and i havent even overclocked it yet :) and prolly wont with what im seeing so far.

              it will be a good card for the kids when i go crossfire in a few months. the vid card was the only thing holding me back from getting back into gaming with this new build and well i had a few dollars so i bought what i could afford at the time :)

              i missed reading about the MB not being SLI compatable which isnt a realy big deal but if i had seen that i would have gotten a ATI card instead but hay no reason crying over spilt milk, my fault and ill correct it when the time comes :)

              ive been away for alittle while Bamboo and i prolly missed reading your post. RL issues have been keeping my rather busy but i have read every one since ive been back :) you do nice work my bratha and i know everyone thanks you for it....

                So cappy, what are you thinking of PR 0.8? I got to say it is a FPS killer. One of the new maps with insurgants in a valley and caves and stuff brought my computer to it's knees when there was a whole lot of smoke popped. I went down to like 10FPS. But when I turned around it was back to 100FPS.

                  ya theres a few maps, havent played them all yet but the lowest ive hit is

                  85 FPS. so far im liking what i did with this system but you know as well as i do you always want MORE!!!! lol hence the crossfire :) im planing on keeping this system for alittle while thats why i went DDR3 and the 9450<--best bang for the buck :) there is NO VIDEO lag at all. i droped the res down from 1600-1200 trying to figure out why i was getting dumped to desktop but tonight i raised it back up alittle wit no problems.

                  tomarro im going to go back to 1600-1200 and see what happens. dirt and wick told me alittle trick and its been working great as far as getting dumped by the handshake or whatever was causing crash to desk and havent had it happen since.

                  im going to start on another build here come turn of the year depends on when intel and xeon release the 8-12 core chips :) it wont be a gaming rig it will be for my DC community team(crunch data for cancer research and such) www.setiusa.net we are the #1 Ranked team in Boinc with over 1 Billion credits to our team :)

                  its either gona be a 16 core or 24 core rig :) :) it may take me a few months from when i start to finish it but its something ive been wanting to do for awhile. could have built a 8 core rig but figured id wait for these new chips to come out because 16 and or 24 core just sounds better :P :P

                  but thats a few months away , im just hoping the 8-12 core chips will be out when im ready :)
