Damn that really sucks that videos cards have to take up two slots. They need to change that.

These cards throw out so much heat, I can't imagine it any other way. I don't want to go liquid cooling, I think it's just useless for me.

I take it your motherboard doesn't have a built in LAN connection.

It uses the wiring in your house instead of an ethernet cable... sorta!

Yeah I did.
You can switch to a pci-e x1 type of wireless card like: http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/...re/1701_2.html
I have one of these and only gave 29.95 USD for it. In a nut shell, it rocks for peanuts.

It says you have to be on the same power circuit. I will be on two completely different ones.

It's just getting too expensive to go SLI. I really don't need it. It's just an impulse with my tax return.

Check this out: D-Link Xtreme N Wireless x1 PCI Express Desktop Adapter, Model: DWA-556
The Abit wifi card would be a good idea, if you can find one.
