Check out the gigabyte p35-ds3 board with crossfire. I cant remember what the letter is, but its not R or L. And you do realize that just because gigabyte makes NV cards they do in fact make a crossfire board.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3P Rev 2.0 LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Ultra Durable 2, Ultra Cooling Intel Motherboard - Retail

I have considered that board, but I came to the conclusion that i would prefer the MSI P35 Plat because it has superior chipset cooling with the roller-coaster-esque circupipe design (its fantastic) and also its much less common than the DS3 mobos, and that is important to me because i wouldnt like my build to be the prety much same as everyone else's on the forum, even if it mean sacrificing a little money/performance for it to be unique.

(i dont mean to flame im just saying)

Heh, unique.... I love my ds3, the reason i suggested that board is that i already know how well my current board performs. Once i have all of my current computer parts paid off and can afford to start working on my HTPC im going to move my ds3r into that and get the ds3p and a couple 2950's whenever they finally come out.
