Im thinking about upgrading my pc and saving cash at the same time.
Could any1 advice a not very expensive but powerful and reliable mobo which supports DDR3 and double GPUs?
Thx to every1 who'll answer :)
not expensive means not more than 150 $

More information needed. Are you keeping your CPU? If so, what do you currently have? If not - do you have a preference?

I decided to double check the board that came up b/c something seemed wrong, and I saw that it was only DDR2. Not sure why the egg dropped the DDR3 from my search but it did. Anyway came in to tell you but you already discovered that too.

Since you have an AMD card, here's 3 boards that support CF though they aren't certified for SLI. I don't know if that's a good sign, not as familiar with socket 775.

The last one doesn't say CF on that page. But Gigabyte's product page does: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3329#ov
