I like the msi, and i think it should work with dual channel mem. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130527

I think that one, because, the other one has Ps/2 ports, and only 4 usb slots, the MSI has 6 usb ports, and, no out dated Ps/2 ports.

The last two processor link are exactly the same. Get the 3500+ Venice. For the motherboards, I think they all have dual channel support anyways. The Biostar looks good. It is the cheapest SLi board I have seen so far. If that's what you can afford, then it looks all right. I like to stick with MSI, Abit, Asus, and DFI. Not that Biostar is bad or anything like that. That motherboard looks decent for the price.

ooh i miss read then. well usb ports come in really handy, as i have noticed. i have 7 on my computer, and im use them all.

as for the processors go, i know nothing of the clamhammer. so i would suggest this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103533
and that, because lookin at specs, it seems easyer to over clock.

no there different because, one has like 1.35/1.4 for voltage, and the other is 1.35. i said the one that i chose was easy to overclock able, because its the one with two voltage things.

Let me find you a good motherboard to use. You're looking at around $100 or less? You don't need SLi if you have a good video card.

OMG, that is uncanny. The other Venice must be a new revision or something. Everything is exactly the same except for those. I'll be a lot of people overlook that.

The 7800 will work on either motherboards you choose, assuming it's a PCI-e and I know they are.
