Default Re: which motherboard

The Asus P5B deluxe is a good motherboard slightly above that price range. At $185, it's a very high quality board, and does have 2 PCIe slots for SLI. You're not going to find many motherboards that support SLI for cheaper than this. Also, it will fit perfectly with your Core 2 Duo processor.
