Sandybridge motherboard - CrossFireX?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was looking around to help my friend make a build... $3000 budget
I was planning on putting an i7 2600k into it... and also two 6990.
I was looking around for a motherboard that can CrossFire ATI cards... to no avail

Does anyone know if this is possible? confused.gif

crossfire is not specific to some boards like sli

any board with enough pci e slots will do fine....however I would wait for the new z68 boards to come out as those will have improved bandwidth for the pci-e slots. most of the 1155 boards now will only do 8x 8x in a dual card configuration

but from what's available right now

is just one example of something that would work
