The Asus P5K is a nice board, but they don't support SLI.

An Asus P5N-D nForce750i SLI would work nicely.

i am running the P5N-T Deluxe board and its amazing. Supports triple SLI, and the board itself is very well designed .

A quality 650W power supply is plenty for a SLI setup.

That is a very nice motherboard, but he's looking to stay under 100.00. The Asus P5N-T Deluxe comes in at 117.45
