Default ok, i got a few questions

ok, i want to play games such as f.e.a.r, doom 3, bf 2, wow, ect... at their highest graphic settings and at high fps. what is the cheapest sli video card that i can get to do this?

and secondly, i want to get the abit fatal1ty motherboard. however, it is $200. is there any motherboard that has just as many features and is as good, but cheaper?

Also, how do you edit images? i heard it was photoshop or something

Yes photoshop CS or CS2....they are ridiculously expensive. Unless you want to use paint.

The cheapest SLi card that'll play FEAR on high settings...damn. An nVidia 6800 or 6800 Ultra.

Second off, no...the abit fatal1ty is great, you can try a dfi lanparty ut nf4...but still the fatal1ty is a great board.
