For the most part SLi is pretty severely bottlenecked by the CPUs because the CPUs just aren't fast enough. But if you're running like two 6600GTs or two 6800NUs it wouldn't be much of an issue.

hi there, mate, i would reconsider the FX-53 the 64 4000 is more or less the smae chip for alot cheaper, if your going to get and FX spent that few extra quid on getting a 55

just my advice

wait another few weeks and scrap the FX55 idea too, get the FX57


The A8N is a good board, I have one along with a DFI SLI-D, right now it really doesnt matter which out of the 2 you get, both are suffering from BIOS bugs and terrible memory compatability issues, the DFI moreso than the Asus.
