Evga 750i - Can anyone suggest a cheaper alternative?

Planning to go SLI with either 2 9600 gso's (price won me over).

Is there any other board that may be slightly less expensive with OC features? Would having DDR2-800 vs 1066 make a huge difference? Because I'd save $40 that way, plus I could use my current ram.

Also, what's the minimum watts in a PSU I should probably get if going SLI?

you can get the evga 680i mobo, but it isn't anywhere close to as good as the 750i. The jump between ddr2 800 vs ddr2 1066 wouldn't be that big of a difference. save the money.

for a psu to run 2 9600gso a quality psu like corsair or pc power and cooling 550w-650w should be plenty to drive your rig.

That is the FTW edition right?

if so, it's a wonderful board, arguably the best 750i board out there.
