The LIGHT has had a job for a few weeks now, and plans to build a custom powerhouse PC with his cash.
Building it will be simple, but selecting parts is killing me! At first I had plans of using two or three graphics cards in SLI mode, so I picked out this nice EVGA 780i board at Newegg.com. However, after thinking it over, I really doubt if I’ll ever have more than one video card. Plus, someone said SLI doesn’t work with Dual monitors, which might be rather cool to have. (That’ll probably never happen either, but…)
So, I ask two things of you. First, is that a good board for a powerhouse PC, even if I never get around to using double or triple SLI?
Secondly, if it’s not worth it, can you suggest a good motherboard? I don’t necessarily dislike AMD, but I think I’m going to go with an Intel Core 2 Quad q6600. Specifically, THIS ONE.
Thank you for reading this, and for any advice you may bestow.
