i will let you guys know what i am gunna do.

Nos, yes i am using a asus 680i


Also can you guys recommend a good crossfire mobo? I will research itm, but maybe you guys have first hand experience

Also... Does crossfire still use that cable in the back? I was just looking at a crossfire card on newegg Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R487-512H-B Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards and i dont see a slot in the back for it



I would rather have an amd crossfire chipset... but the only sucky thing is that i have an intel cpu...... i am not switching over to an amd cpu................

How about this mobo? Newegg.com - ASUS RAMPAGE FORMULA LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Ok change of direction here. Thinking a bout maybe scrapping my qx6700 and getting 2 cheaper quad core cpus and getting this skulltrail board. I do tons and tons of renering which is cpu intensive. It also says that this board supports crossfire

Newegg.com - Intel BOXD5400XS Dual LGA 771 Skulltrail D5400XS Extended ATX Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

if you have the money then its a good option, but if u get cheap quads, then they'l be about 2Ghz, and u wont get that much overclocking done by them due to poor oc'ing by FB-DIMMs - ur gonna have to shell out more dosh for them as well, so say byebye to ur current 8gb of ram :O :O :O
