cheap gigabyte board w/ sli support: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128502

think the msi p67a boards are better than gigabytes though

the asus graphics cards are good, have nice heatsinks

I had problems with my old msi board, and their reputation as far as motherboards go is pretty poor if you search around (fsb holes, shitty thermal paste on the mosfet, nb, sb, etc). I love my gigabyte board. Overclocks like a beast with no need to increase voltage.

Also I always go with eVGA graphics cards for their customer support/warranty, but asus is solid. Altho, if I found a random brand card that was on sale, I would go with that because I don't think it matters all that much.

pretty much. as long as it's from reputable manufacturer and it has a good warranty it doesn't matter too much. i've had really bad luck with PNY cards though, avoid those.

also those pre-overclocked cards are rarely worth it (unless they actually have a bigger heatsink or something), because you can easily do it yourself and save the $20-30.

I disagree. I'd only ever go for a brand I know is quality for all my PC parts.

I'll show you a board when you're ready to buy one.
