i'd also recommend to spend the little bit more and get the EVGA board though.

Blade: you won't get cheap SLI on Intel... I would never even get that Asus board. Forget SLI, and get a single 8800GTS.

8800gts>2x 9600gt's?

It'll be close...but a single 8800GTS saves you money. If you go SLI, the eVGA board for $190 is the BARE minumum you should get for decent performance/quality. Go for a single card and a single hard drive, and save major money on the mobo (see edits in my previous post).
