Any reason you have to have this board? I went with the DFI LP x38 board... That would save you another $70 bucks or so...

Just to clarify what surgeVal said, the 4870 cards do require two 6pin power connectors for each card. But they also come with two molex to 6pin adapters with the card.

So it is possible

gaming computer = e84/8500 FTW....
just an option. also, from what i heard, there is a price cut in like 4 days or so. in terms of quads, q9550 is supposed to be price of q9450 (like $379). i'd wait a couple more days and investigate that. if the 9550 goes that low, i'll be buyin me one lol like real quick.

EDIT: whoops, just saw the "multi-task" part of your post at the bottom. in any event, i'd wait and see what the 45nm quads are gonna do. maybe the q6600 will even go down a little.

So I went looking for x8 vs x16 crossfire comparison and I found this... Not sure how accurate it is.

Legion Hardware

The p45 x8 consistently beat the x38 with ATI 4850s so that might be something to think about.

Q9550 will be $316 when the price cut occurs.

GOD! i'm tired of people recommending duel-cores when they cost over $180!

if you are going to to spend $200 for a CPU, why would you want to spend it on a duel-core when you could get a quad-core for the same price?!

duel-core=$100 per core
Quad-core=$50 per core

it's basically buy 2 cores get 2 free if you get a quad are that price

EDIT: I don't think the 8x and 16x thing makes such a different because cards don't use it right now anyway
