    By the way, just so you know PCI x is not PCI express, it was a technology developed several years ago. PCI express is abbreviated PCIe.

    AS for the SLI board, can I ask why? Most of the time it's better to go with one fast graphics card like an 8800GTS than use two slower cards in SLI.

    2 7600s are better than 1 7600, but one 8800 is better than two 7600s and is the same price. Your current board should support an 8800 fine, but you will need to upgrade your power supply first. You should have done that for SLi as well.
