ive ordered a q9450 its arriving tomorrow and my question is
i wanted to have quad sli and i dont knw what motherboard would be better i want something not so expensive and would let me do quad sli on 2 9800gx2 and would a the silverstone da750 do the job on 2 9800gx2? and i plan 2 get another 2x2GB team extreem dark 1066 or should i change it also with the new board? i wanted to try out ddr3 but last i check it was still to expensive and hard to come by here were i live, if thier a good motherboard ddr3 and a ddr3 thats not expensive can you guys tell me which brand model?
i was just thinking about a small upgrade i have the q9450 and was planning on a 9800gx2 and maybe later on adding another 9800gx2, what your though on this?

What monitor do you have, what games do you play? Your current setup is what many consider high end:)

my monitor is a samsung bw226 22 inch

just got the q9450 installed, wow this quads are good got to 3.8ghz with only 1.2volts

i was planning to change my motherboard and mems to use ddr3 any recomendation, coz im buliding a rig for my brother so i think i'll be using my old processor which is a e6600 core 2 duo coz he doesnt play games

and maybe i'll give him my motherboard and mems, i just dont knw which board at the moments is a good choice that is ddr3 and SLI that is sorta cheap and good =) so maybe in the future i can do sli

games i play atm are call of duty 4 and world of warcraft
