    I have an opportunity to get a really good deal on a system upgrade. I was hoping to pick up the following:

    AMD64 X2 4400+
    TWO GeForce 7900 GTX cards to run SLI

    I need a good motherboard that can support that. I also have 2 gigs of dual channel RAM and a Sound Blaster Audigy X-Fi FPS edition, and a TV tuner card.

    So yeah, I need space for two GeForce 7900 GTX cards, a big sound card, and a TV Tuner. Anyone have suggestions on the motherboard that can fit all this?

    Yeah, thats what I was looking at. My only concern is if there is enough space for both 7900 GTX cards and the Audigy X-Fi to breath and cool down. I'll have to install another fan beside them on the case I'm sure (have the spot for one, hole in the side already).

    Turns out the 4400+ is backordered, so I may just get the 4800+. Hopefully this thing rocks. LOL. I'll send my request for the Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe then.

    Thanks :)
