no, to use SLI, you will need to use an nForce chipsets.
I dont like how nVidia limits their boards for SLI, them greedy punks..

if you want the cheapest with the latest chipset, it would be the MSI 750i
MSI 750i
heres the rest of the 7xx chipsets
chipsets

i dont think the 6xx series is really worth it for the ones on newegg. I would post tigerdirect links, but i dont really know how to use tigerdirect...

You run 1440x960 though, you don't need SLi and therefore you don't need to weigh yourself down with an Nvidia chipset. Get a P45 and be happy.

i think getting a great chipset with an great single graphics card is the way to go.
and if things starts to get slow, then Overclock?
