Default My future (hopefully soon :() builds

Ok, re edited the post, because I looked like an idiot.


ANYWAYS...

I need a good, cheap crossfire board. Will this be available for under 200, that is also good for the new 3800s?

hmmm

So x16 and x4, or whatever it is, won't cut it?

Why not??? How much decrease in performance than 2 x16s?

man... this is getting quite expansive, since I was just planning on getting a P35 platinum (MSI), and 2 3850's (512 mb)

If you can afford it just go for a P35 board and a single 8800GTS 512mb.

hmmm...

Really, I'm an ATI fan. I love ATI, so...

but that seems cheaper. That way, I could even use this motherboard.
