And if you were wondering, I made sure that the M-Board was SLI compatible because I am thinking of heavily upgrading in 1 to 2 years time, and I think that there is a prosperous future for SLI (Correct me if i'm wrong). I am looking at possible updates at the mo but they will almost definately be outdated by then. Here is a good candidate for todays SLI.
