Default Motherboard Help

Hey guys,

As some of you might know, i am in the market for a computer. I have a general idea of what i want, but the only thing that is bugging me is the motherboard. I want an nVidea chipset, something that has 2x SLI, something that is easily upgradeable, and that will last a long time. I was thinking about either the 750i or 780i, but i don't know which brand or model to chose.

This computer would be used for mild gaming, and possibly some photoshoping and/or graphics creation. Help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Johanster

If you've got the money, 780i.

Well i am kind of on a limited budget of about $800. And if i were to get the 780i, which brand? I have heard bad things about EVGA, so i am looking for other brands that are going to be a good purchase.

Bad things? Must have been DOA. eVGA is a great brand.

Crap, forgot to mention that im in Canada... Also, $240 is a bit high for my price range. I guess i'm now going for the 750i. Any recommendations?
