ok, lol, zen has discussed this before, sli isnt all its put up to be, cuz not all apps can even make use of it, so i would go with that mobo, but insted of gettin 2 of those gfx cards get ONE ati x850 XT platinum edition, i believe it scores even or better than 2x 6800GT's and it should be around the same cost
