Decent SLI board under $150?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to build up a new rig next month, and considering a E6600, E6750 or a Q6600. Just wondering if there are any decent boards for ~$150 or under that have SLI support and would overclock to a decent amount. I heard the ABit Fatality is an alright MoBo for that range - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127022. Wondering if there are any others.

Thanks, I'll look into both of those.

How would this compare to the MSI though? It's the same board, just a step lower I believe. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130082 (if I were to go dual core and not quad, since this isn't a quad board).

Ahh I didn't notice that. "The 2nd PCI Express X16 slot will operate at X8 mode when SLI Technology has been enabled". So much for that idea .

Thanks for the help.

Hey ignite,

To tell you the truth, SLI and "budget" should never go together. If you are in the budget range for a motherboard you should consider a single GPU option (Unless you are upgrading a current GPU).

If you are getting a setup with new GPU's, definately go for a higher end single GPU over the SLI ones. This will be a much better setup.
