    Don't want to spend much more than this on graphics and mobo, only chose these evga's for the lifetime warranty. CPU will be E8400 once it's back in stock.

    nforce chipsets are buggy compared to intel chipsets

    Not that I'd need to upgrade this soon, but I was thinking 6-12 months from now I could pick up a 2nd card to throw in their for cheap. Maybe by then though a new single card would do just as well though rendering the SLI useless for me?

    12 months from now buying a second 8800gt would be at best a bad idea

    you are almost always better off buying a single card.
