1. I have 2 7600gts amd i want to run them sli. which dfi board is the best to do this with?<br />
2. I have only briefly experimented with overclocking before but my mobo right now is crap. Which DFI mobo is the most user friendly without compromising performance. Or are they not that hard to understand?(I learn quickly)<br />
3. I want 2X1gigs of memory and i like how the crucial ballistix look, but i was scared by the number of people who complain about them burning out or being DOA. Are there any other compatible types of RAM i should look into?<br />
<br />
4.I have this PSU:<a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817103937" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103937</a><br />
it is very good for the comp i have now but i am scared that it might not have enough power on the 12v and it is modular so it might have too big of power fluctuations. <br />
<br />
All help will be appreciated!

</div>Agreed! Getting any 2x1 gb DDR ram is getting harder to find, and more expensive.<br />
G.Skill, OCZ, Mushkin, Crucial, Team Extreme, New Talent and Corsair all make good ram.<br />
I think the Crucial Ballistix had good reviews so they were bought up and overvolted without adequate cooling. They should work fine as the bugs are prolly all fixed.<img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
DFI's do not like value ram, or cheapo ram. I'd stick to G. Skill DDR-500 HZ's if<br />
you can find some.<img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

Dont know if you bought it yet. But also pick up a Evercool VC-RE for the active northibridge cooling. Does a much better job as the DFI ones seem to crap out. I just added mine on today but I suggest you get it right away so you dont have to remove the mobo. Also the fan can be controlled in speedfan <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />

also if you buy that you can add the newegg.com sticker and get it for free!<br />
