Default Can this support dual graphics cards?

Hey guys, I have extremely limited knowledge of computers just so you know. I'm looking to buy a cheap but decent gaming computer (somewhere between $500 - $1000) and came across this on Newegg http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16883229090

For now, this computer looks like it will sustain my gaming needs for quite awhile. But When I do want to upgrade it, the first thing I would probably do would be the graphics. I'm interested in having dual nvidia 260 cards (at least) in it. I am wondering if the motherboard (I think thats where they go lol) and the computer as a whole, could support this upgrade? Thanks for looking over my post and I am open to suggestions as well.

Thanks!

Well to be honest, you can build a heck of a lot better system for the same price if you build yourself.

From the pics shown of the computer, it looks to have only one PCIe slot for a video card.

He could customize, but I don't know if he's willing to build. You can save a lot of madness.

But whatever you find suitable for your tastes.

Oh really? That makes alot more sense actually thanks! I don't think I can order from cyberpower however, because I live in Canada. I don't think they deliver here.

Thanks alot though!

I use Tigerdirect.com and Newegg.com for my builds/parts.

I'm very sure all of us here would be more than happy to design a system and help you build it. As others have said, it is more price efficient and most of the time it looks way better

Hmm ok, I could use some suggestions. I am confident I will be able to build a computer, I researched and found lots of helpful videos/step by step guides on how to actually put them together.

My main purpose for this computer is going to be gaming. Mainly WoW. I want to be able to play WoW on full settings at like 60 fps, even in the most graphically intense situations. Also, I love having a quick computer so a solid processor is a must. I was either thinking 4 or 6 gigs of RAM. My main concerns are the graphics card, and the mother board. Also, in the near future, I am going to want to have a second monitor. If you guys are willing to take your time and suggest some builds for me I will be extremely grateful!

Right now, I have a ~800$ budget.

Thanks alot!
