Default Few queries...

Hey all, hopefully building a gaming rig soon and I need some advice. Spending no more than 1000!

Which (in your opinion) is the best CrossFire enabled motherboard?

Check these rigs out:


Can I still have a CrossFire motherboard with the Intel i7 920 CPU?



What do you think of both?
Which CrossFire motherboard? What will I need to change?

If anyone could produce a rig for me I would be extremely grateful! UK hardware site: Computer Hardware - All - Scan.co.uk
Thanks!

Oh really! So that MSI X58 Pro could allow me to use CrossFire?

Default Re: Few queries...

while they are a little bit more I would be looking at one of these boards:

GA-EX58-UD4 - Gigabyte EX58-UD4, Intel X58 Express, S1366, PCI-E 2.0x16, DDR3 1333, SATA 3Gb/s, SATA RAID, ATX - Scan.co.uk

Asus P6T, Intel X58, S1366, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), Triple DDR3 2000(OC), SATA 3Gb/s, SATA RAID, ATX - Scan.co.uk

or even this which is closer to the close of you original board.
Asus P6T SE, Intel X58, Sok 1366, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), DDR3 2000/1866/1800, SATA 3Gb/s, SATA RAID, ATX - Scan.co.uk

Yeah, I originally had the Asus P6T. Don't really know why I changed to that; think I saw it in another rig! I'll change now, thanks guys!.
