unless you get it already loaded with the latest BIOS.

Which motherboard should be purchased to be free of such issues. Secondly, I want to have 2 Graphics Cards on the setup, please Advise! redface.gif
you really need to be looking at Z77 motherboards.
and depending on your resolution my first guess is a pair of GTX 660's for your SLi.

Brother, I came across two motherboards:

ASUS Sabertooth Z77,

ASRock Z77 Extreme4
http://stores.tomshardware.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=994490053

I heard there are "GTX 650Ti Boost" Graphics Cards that are cheaper than the 660 and support SLI.

What say?

I like the Sabertooth better than the Extreme 4, now if you can find an Extreme 6 then that's better.
(more options...?)

as for the GTX 650 Ti vs GTX 660, the GTX 660 is only a few dollars more and I rather have that...
