Upgrading to PCI-E

Postposted on Fri Sep 30, 2005 4:57 pm

Well here is my situation. I currently have a 939 3500+ W. and an Epox nforce 3 ultra. 1gb ram and a 6800 limited edtion.
Right now i'm not really playing games to much becaue of college and now i've got some cash kinda burning a hole in my pocket :lol: . Anyways I was thinking of getting an SLI board and maybe a 6600gt to hold me over for a while. I'm not sure if my PSU is compatible tho, something about a 24-pin connector is needed for nfoce-4 boards? I have this one
So my questions are what is a good SLI mobo for up to $130 or so?

Dude, put the money in the bank and wait until you have saved enough for a new motherboard AND a good video card. Switching to PCI-Express with another mid-range card isn't going to improve your gaming experience over a mid-range card with AGP.

Watch the prices on GeForce 7800GT and whatever new card that ATI comes up with to compete against it.

well i geuss i didn't explain my thinking, I'm not looking to improve preformance because i don't need it right now, i want to sell the 6800 limited before it's value goes down more along with the mobo, but your right i guess i should save my money :roll:
