why are all of you stuck on the DS3R still....an Asus P5k-e is a MUCH better motherboard...and it supports crossfire.

if it supports crossfire, then it might be the better choice, if he does decide to go dual ATI cards... but a mobo brand is preference only. I have had nothing but good experiences with Gigabyte, so I went with it. But these only suggestions. It not like we are MAKING him buy these parts...

those only have 1 PCI-e slot

but yeah...i'd go with a Maximus Formula and go dual 3870's if you go that route

or go 780i with dual GTS's (G92)


can't go wrong either way.

This is incorrect now. Crossfire scales better than SLI, and ultimately 2 HD3870s are faster than SLI'd GTS

EDIT: This may have already been established. I think it's good though, little competition always helps us.

The DS3P has Crossfire capabilities. The DS3R is the board without crossfire.
