Default Two nVidia 6800 ULTRA's?

How do you use two of those in one system? The motherboard supports it with 2 AGP slots? Or what?

Only PCI-e allows for 2 video nvidia video cards. It wont work in AGP.

yer what you said is right m8, trouble is with sli is that your main pci 6800 (or whateva card you want) will be in the pci-x slot (like agp) and therefore be at 16x but the second 6800 wil be a ordinary pci-e slot with only 4x? (correct me if i am wrong guys i am only just grasping this concept lol)
