well to get rid of the SLI problem you could get a 4870 or an ATI GPU and crossfire it later with the MSI board. Or do you not have the option of changing the GPU?

^^^ I did read his first post...

But AMD owns ATI...

2 birds with 1 stone IMO

I was just giving him another option incase he didnt know he could do this AR I wasn't trying to push ATI on him or anything.
