Besides my love for MMO's like World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy 14, I really enjoy playing Sim games. So a lot of racing and flight sim stuff. I really want to have a try on DCS , Digital Combat Simulator, which mixes ground and air warfare up, so you have have some epic matches, where you ground troops can call in air support etc. These games normally have really hardcore players, who will run multiple screens and have all the fancy flight controls etc. Many of them have optimisation for SLi / X-Fire. When SLi started to become popular, I got myself a Dell XPS with SLi. When it arrived, the first thing I did was take out some of the parts and put much better, faster or bigger ones in. I had dual Nvidia 630GT's , so about 14 years ago. It's something I have always liked, but it seems almost everyone I mention SLi too online, suddenly jumps out of their chair, screaming at their screen "NO FELIX NO!" I would like to do it eventually, as it will be another thing I will need to work out and configure, so it only runs on one card when in a set list of programmes and/or is in a performance profile, such as gaming mode. The Core i7 my friend got me, is the i7 870 Quad core 2.9ghz CPU that is from the LGA1156 family. I've been going through tons of different makes and models of motherboard, that are of a good quality and are under £110. Asus do the P7P55D series of motherboards, I think I only saw one ROG board, as it was the only red one I came across. I have found a LGA1156 Alienware board, which has all the specs I require from the new board. I will have to take another look, using "Republic of Gamers" in the search title.
