    I would suggest ASUS A8N-E for non-SLI and ASUS A8NE-SLI PREMIUM for SLI setup.

    Don't think so. 6600gt in it's class doesn't have any competition from ATI.
    Maybe ATI has same price range but not the same performance. If u could raise ur budget to about 14K u could buy 6800gs.
    Both 6600gt and 6800gs has the best price to performance ratio but 6800gs is the latest so if possible go for it or settle for 6600gt.

    If u r interested in ATI, then u should prefer buying a MOBO that supports Crossfire mode---
    http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.php?UID=697
    ==OR==
    http://www.asus.com/products4.aspx?l1=3&l2=15&l3=268&model=1042&modelmenu=1

    The ASUS motherboard supports the newer CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipset but would be costlier. (recommended)

    Get either PowerColor X800 XL or PowerColor X1600 XT for gfx cards.
    The former should be cheaper but Powercolor availibility in India is a problem ;)
