I sold the TV I wanted to use as a 3rd monitor. So no, I wont be.

Unless I get another TV, but I would need to do that first and that is way more then a mobo so sli right now is the least of my worries.

I am a little confused. What does SLI have to do with a third monitor? You wanted to do Geforce surround vision? It kills performance from what I hear. Eyefinity is a much better option.

No, I would run a second video card for the third monitor.

You could always just throw some cheapo card in for it though, and it will run at x4 on the 770 chipset. Or you could get a HD 5xxx and it can run three monitors by itself.

Yeah I could. All options to think about.

I wish I knew more about motherboards.

I am not sure what to look for to make sure that the two USB ports on computer case will hook up to the motherboard?

I am now thinking this mobo......


MSI 770-G45 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard


???

Or this one, because itlooks like it is overclocking idiot proof

MSI 870A-G54 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Any motherboard should have usb headers.

Both boards look good, but I am not sure how well they will overclock.

I think I will go with the 870, because it looks like it is more so for an overclocker newbie.

not sure I like the sounds of ''auto oc genie'' though. I thought I wanted to do that manually. I guess we will find out. Worst case senario I could return it for store credit and probably loose a few dollars and get the 770.



Although. What is your opinion on the Biostar TA790GX 3+?

Biostar boards are pretty meh from my experiences. For overclocking, definitely go with the MSI.

Well I can get the biostar for 60 from a buddy. I think I want brand new though.

I will do either of those MSI boards. Havent decided yet.

As for a video card

XFX PVT95GZAFG GeForce 9500 GT 1GB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card

and the memory

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL8D-4GBRM

That video card... Just no. Post up a budget for the GPU. I could help you find one.
