Have looked at some of the discussion lines and have bought kit to start building up to a rig (listed in profile - jup you guessed it, its the PC that ebay build ) but have come down to which motherboard and need input from those wize prophets that sit in the pantheons of knowledge. (bla bla bla major suck up....)
the 3 Mobo's I'm looking at are:
*Gigabyte K8NXP-SLI (due to having the 6800 Ultra's from Gigabyte, but been told is limited on RAM overclocking and memory banks are close together = heating?)
*Asus ? (told they are rock solid and i dont want to go mental on overclocking, don't know how good though)
*DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR (pricey but lets me match my RAM but dumber than a plank(newbie) when it comes to config the bios)
Or should I be looking at another board not mentioned here - don't know what is out there ?
All help greatly appreciated. here is my components so far (in case profile can't be seen)
Thermaltake Tsunami Case (due to all aluminium + 2x 120 fans)
Enermax Noisetaker 600W (2x SLI)+ 2 fans
2x GeForce 6800 Ultra 256MB SLI PCI-e (do they require extra cooling?)
AMD Athlon 64 FX55 1MB L2Cache 939pin(ADAFX55ASBOX)
1 Gig (2x 512mb)OCZ PC4400 DDR550 GOLD LTD EDITION
