As the title says I am looking for an SLi board, so I can add a second 9800GTX.

The most affordable that OC's well(for nvidia anyways) would be the 750 FTW.

ehhh.. best of luck nvidia's chipset doesn't do the best with OCing. The tradeoff is you get SLI. I would recomend that you get one of EVGA's "For the win" boards. 780i FTW edition or something. They have added power regulation on the board, so they're probably your best bet.

I dunno, maybe someone else knows something I don't, though.

Thanks. All I need is a 500FSB capable one actually. I run my E7200 @ 500 x 8 = 4000, and my ram at 1:2

So ill look into the 700 ftw stuff.
