I agree with the above, the 750i does not suffer the same NB heat problems and a good asus 750i is more stable than the dreaded 780i's

otherwise it will have to be a 790i (V expensive) or a 680i (expensive still even though its getting old now)

I have a Asus P5n32-E SLI and have overclocked a E6600 to 3.4 easy, but I have never tried sli on this board.

Striker II formula is not officially listed by Asus so the NSE and the Extreme are the choices that are left.

Now is not a good time to buy a video card.

The Nvidia GTX280 will be released June17, and it pretty much destroys the current G92/G94.

I see you chose an EVGA that's a good choice as you can "step-up" if you don't want to wait 3 more weeks and want to buy it now.
