    elo all, looking to buy two dual slot sli cards but my current board (DFI LanParty NF4 SLI-DR) I just cant see dual slot cooled cards fitting.

    So whats the best board out at the moment, AMD and nf4 shipset would be a must

    The expert does have a bigger gap you are right than the Sli-D/DRs ;)

    That's true, however probably not bigger than the Asus A8N32-SLi Deluxe nForce4 SLi X16! (at the sake of most PCI slots lost while using SLI).

    Yup the A8n32SLI has a mighty gap between the PCI-e slots. Although dont expect much else to fit in the 1 pci slot thats left over(between the sli setup) if they have dual slot coolers. You can just about squeeze an XFI card in there but then the airflow to the graphics card in slot 1 will suffer.
