Any way you go a I7 system with SLI will be very expensive.

Why do you want SLI anyway?

SLI and Crossfire are really not worth the money unless you ABSOLUTELY must have the fastest rig available. Then you would buy 2 of the fastest cards available. Otherwise buying two affordable cards is not as goo as buying one better card.

SLI/ Crossfire require a more powerful power supply. i7 uses triple channel RAM which is more costly. The boards and CPU are more expensive too.

If you want something more affordable consider AMD offerings. Post a budget and someone can suggest components.

I could practically build an entire system for the cost of one Asus P6T6 WS Revolution!

you are correct the board is way too expensive and i also agree that SLI is not worth the money, i have spoken to the person and convinced him its not worth going down this route.

What i would like is a Gigabyte motherboard as i think they are prob the best (my opinion) although ASUS is also good, i need something that can take a quad processor, DDR3 RAM, and has a good number of USB ports, say 6?

I dnt mind doing my own research but dont know where to start can you possibly suggest some reviews i can read please? or even recommend a motherbaord?

the computer will be used to do loads of video editing so i need to make something that will achieve this, also for gaming.
