I had two old system an intel and amd that I brought together with a few new parts to make a sweet*** gaming computer. Now that computer also had gone past its prime. So now I'm getting ready to upgrade the system, but I need a few questions answered first. My questions are mainly about the core of the computer becuase thats what I'm upgrading. I know my questions are silly and noobish, but please bare with with. Thanks.

What is the difference btw AMD Phenom™ X4 Quad-Core 9950 125W and 140W?
What is the best or most highly recommended motherboard for an AMD Phenom™ X4 Quad-Core 9950 CPU?
Does SLI memory work with AMD setups? What does it help/do?
If I have 3 PCIe x16 could I put two ATI 4870 X2 and one Nvidia 280 GTX, but still have the abilities of both card?

I believe the way SLI or CrossFire works is that you have to have to have two identical cards for it to work - If you had two 280GTX's AND a motherboard that supports SLI, then you would be able to get the full performance from both of them. Same with the ATI cards, except you would need a board that supports CrossFire.
