    I guess if you want the ultimate, or you could use a pair of 6600GT's

    As for ATI

    ATI is working hard to catch up with Nvidia in the SLI game, and it will try to make its chipset and drivers ready for launch as soon as possible. This is expected sometime in Q2 2005.
    It also works with one v-card

    The Asus EZ Selector with this A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard lets you choose between one video graphics card or two video graphics card by changing the position of this card. Simply unclip the two metal retaining clips, pull the card out and turn through 180 degrees and re-install.

    if u do..make sure its sli compatible.. and 6200's arent even sli. The earliest model u can get for sli is the 6600gt's.there's still some 6600gt's out there that arent sli, so be careful and read before you buy. you can goto this link for a list of sli certified parts staight from nvidia.

    hope it help

    Jeesh $1300 dollars should get you a hot box.I'm spending about 5-6 hundred but that's for mobo,memory,and cpu.The pci express board sounds tempting but from what I have read the hottest vid cards that are out(AGP) do not even take advantage of the 8X slot.You are going to have one smoking pc Shadow let us know of your progress.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    also gigabyte makes a pretty good SLi board for $156

    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...128-279&depa=1

    I bought my mobo right when the new nvidia chipsets came out and i got a single
    pci-e x16 board for the same price so the costs have come down a lot.

    Plus dual 6600's are real nice in an Sli configuration. If only I could afford it.

    Damn TestMAD that is a nice configuration. Your computer score high on the benchmarks.

    you could prolly rig a small CO2 extinguisher with a temp sensetive valve on it..if it got hot enuff for a fire.. then it would go off inside the case... like the heat sensetive water sprinklers in buildings but with a fire extinguisher. It is possible tho.
