Btw, 3gb sli. Just ask the poster below me.
I know SOME PEOPLE have had issues getting 16GB to work on Sandy Bridge. Could have been overclocking 16GB, I'm honestly not 110% sure.

With your budget, you could EASILY build a tri-SLI rig, with water on everything. Don't do a pre-built, learn it yourself. There's TONS of helpful people here that would happily help you out with it. I'll go searching right now for a parts list for you with your budget.

There is also the Asus P8P67 WS Revolution for a little less moolah.
I really like my Maximus IV Extreme.

IMO, the Asus boards are the creme of the Sandy Bridge boards. Feature-rich and proven by so many here on OCN and [H].

You're right about that stuff, but does it support Tri-SLi? I only see a 2way connector and it doesn't mention 3way speeds at all.

Ok, you're right, it doesn't support Tri-SLI, my bad.

Then again, does he REALLY needs Triple SLI? I'm afraid the budget won't cover that if he wants an SSD too. Also, AFAIK there isn't a huge performance difference between two and three GTX 580's when running on SLI.
