    Yes, they both support Triple Channel memory, the difference is that the P6T supports Quad CrossFire from ATI and 3-Way SLI from NVidia but the the P6T only supports Quad CrossfireX from ATi and does NOT support 3-Way SLI.

    You can compare any Asus motherboard by clicking "Product Comparison" on the Asus site: http://www.asus.com/Comparison.aspx...B_iframe=ture&height=535&width=500&white=true

    It depends on what brand of video card you use AND if you want to use 3-Way SLI or not.

    The GTX 460 only supports 2-Way SLI. The GC version is an overclocked version compare to the plain Galaxy GTX 460 model, it runs at 700Mhz versus the standard 675Mhz, what it actually stands for I have no idea and they dont seem to specify on their website.

    907 Watts seems high. I just quickly did the same calculator and with a 2-Way SLI setup I get 650 watts.

    So really for headroom, safety, and room to upgrade I'd say 650 watts for single card, and 750+ watts for an 2-Way SLI setup. More is fine but I don't think its needed unless you go 3-way SLI or 3 or 4 way CrossFire.

    so if i buy a power supply with the Watt is higher than necessary it's ok ? Just as long as it's not too much higher , right ? If so maybe i'll go with 800 w.Thank you.

    Less is bad, more is good, and there's no top limit. The system will only ever use as much as it needs.

    Make sure to get a quality brand or the numbers will mean squat. Corsair is currently one of the top recommended brands, Antec is good too.
