That list can't be right. If it supports the X6800 it should also have the Q6600 listed, I didn't see it, unless I just breezed by it.

Easy solution. Your budget is $250 for the CPU, but you want the Core2Quad Q6600 ($215). So, reroute that extra $35 into the mobo, and get a respectable one.

Do you absolutely have to have micro ATX, or can you use ATX? Let me know, and I'll pull up some options.

My case is a Mini ATX I think, here is the link, hope it works. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16856110072

That's why I think the list is incomplete, I don't know of a reason they would include the 6800 and not the other.

Not to be nosy..but what are you setting your budget to? That will help us give you some better alternatives.

I thought that the X6800 was a Core 2 Duo running at 2.93GHz..... that would explain the lack of quad core support on that mobo.

You're not being nosy. Well I have a guitar & amp I'm going to sell for about $400 or so....so I would say around $400. After talking to you & others I think I should just sell my PC to my friend & start over, it's a barebones & it's limiting way too much. If I do sell it & the guitar I will have about $800 or so to build a new one.

Can I do a SLI system for $800 to $900?

My client will be here soon, so I don't have time atm, I'm sure someone will offer good suggestions. I'll toss my 2c in after work tonight.

But SLI? Some folks are having great success with it, some aren't. I'm very happy with a single gpu setup atm.
