    Default SLI Mobo

    What's the cheapest sli motherboard I can get in BD? I've got a 9800gt and my cousin recently gave me his. So I was thinking of putting them in sli but I'll need a new motherboard. Since I'll be getting a new one soon anyways, I was thinking of getting the cheapest possible SLI mobo.

    Vai apnar processor e may be bottleneck hote pare, so age ekta valo processor nen or cooler nie oc kore erpor oc koren, but i should suggest u to go for a gtx 460 later cuz it is more powerful even than a 9800 quad sli(its impossible but erokomi difference, gtx 460 gtx 280 cheo slightly powerful) or apnar je configuration ache pc ta rakhe pore josh upgrade koren, 9800 gt sli seems to me, will not be a better option, performance sammano ektu increase korbe like 4-7fps er moto. So i agree with romulus_ut3 vai.

    Sorry I was in a hurry and couldn't write details, thank you @shafi for clearing it up to him, you see, dual graphics card solutions are never an option unless there's no other way to get the job done, instead of spending money on a SLI motherboard for LGA775 platform which in my opinion is a dead platform, rather save the money. 2X9800GT will get you around about 7~8K cash depending on for how much you can sell them, and add some more money with it to buy a GTX 550Ti and invest on a better processor, if you wanna SLI 2X9800GT, not only your processor will bottleneck the system, you're going to need a minimum of 675W Power to stay safe (550W Should be enough but in my opinion having some breathing space will help the PSU last longer) and I suggest you upgrade to core i5 if possible if you do plan to upgrade your system, buying a SLI mobo for your processor and graphics cards, not to mention a compatible power supply, is certainly going to be a bad way to spend money on your system.

    using sli would be waste of money and power with ur configuration and the cheap mobos will give performance like a single gfx as the pci-ex16 lane wuld be shared to 8x + 8x rather buy two new hd5670 ddr5 and crossfire them it will give performance greater than gtx 460 and update the driver

    Sorry for the late reply. Thanks a lot guys for all your suggestions. I guess I'll just have to start saving and get a whole new pc later on.....
    Sad really cause no matter how backdated it may be right now, it was my first pc and its really served me well so far.
