Unless your planning on running 3 3870's theres no real point to it.

I ran an Inno3D GeForce 4 MX440 from its release until about half a year ago, worked fine.

it says it only has 2 pci-e 2.0, and one pci-e 4x. is that 4x able to do a tri crossfire? I thought it had to be 16x..

3- that is a great board, but it is 270 bucks, you can get a abit quad gt x38 for much less and get a wonderful board. (I would love** to have one of those, oh man DFI has such beautiful boards)
woops!!! I was looking at the pics and I guess and I linked you guys to those instead haha

So far ive owned pny, xfx, evga and have had no problems so far... I used the step-up program and all that jazz and it went smoothly...


You have to understand that they are all trying to get you to buy there products... they arent just going to blow you off.

I think my next card might be a bfg if i keep seeing these awesome prices and there trade up program coming into effect... Assumming i go nvidia of course.

XFX for me all the way my old card was an 7600gt. Now I'm just awaiting delivery for my xfx 8800 gts. Excited? Why yes I am.
