dfi is a well known brand, and its got crossfire

and whats up with the vista ready crap... how many times must we the people say... its just an os..... it has no motherboard requirement... all those "vista ready" sticks are just a marketing scheme.. make people think they need certain **** to use vista...

well asrock from what i hear is just a terrible company.. but i have no first hand experience...

and crossfire is ati's sli.. basically it lets you use 2 ati graphics cards.. 1 crossfire edition card, and one regular card together connected with a dongle to give you awesome incredible performance!

Crossfire is like SLi for ATi video cards. But it works a little different.

Crossfire is a dual-Graphics Card solution using ATI's chipset. Will cost 700$ish for a high-end Crossfire setup.

umm no it won't try 700.... crossfire card is only 400 and xt is only 300.. so we're looking at 750ish.. but i guess thast still close.. i wouldnt go as far as 1000 unless your buying xtx's... but the same could be said for sli in that case
