Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TPower I45 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
Does this support crossfire? I also want to put e8500 in it.

First of all what size monitor will you be gaming on? If it's anything lower than a 1680x1050 resolution then Crossfire is pretty much pointless. Now if you are gaming at 1920x1200 then you should.

I didn't know that. I was reading the reviews and kept seeing everyone paired the motherboard with an Nvidia card. So I just assumed that it was SLI. My bad?

Oh man I now understand why everyone was saying Epic Fail.

I am going to be playing on like a 19' screen with 1280×1024. I will probably upgrade to 22' soon. I just want good FPS in Crysis/WoW.
