I am looking at an EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1
and an EVGA 132-CK-NF78-A1
for my mother board
I don't know a lot about motherboards and what too look for in one I know it hast he right FSB and Socket for my CPU and that is about it.
Sli I am planning on only using one gtx 260 card but wanted to be able to add a second in the future, don't really need three.
Then there is the memory is DDR2 800 going to operate slower than DDR2 1066.
On the 132-CK board the northbridge will be blowing its hot air down onto the graphics card will that make a big difference on the heat of my GPU.
Also will a Zalman 9700 heatsink fit on this board I found a picture of a person using a Zalman on the 132-CK but i couldn't tell wiether it was the 120mm or the 92mm.
The last thing I am worried about it some where in the future being bale to add a sound cardon the 123-YW the express 1x is above the first graphics port so I guess I could get one for that and the 132-CkK has plenty of PCI the problem is from the picture of the 132-Ck it looks like the SLI bridge(figuring I will have a second gpu at that time) will prevent me from doing this.
One last thig I don't know a lot about over clocking but from what I have heard it is almost necessary unless you have the money for top of the line stuff (which I don't have, so whihc board would handle it best.
Thanks for any help you can provide to lead me in the right direction
