[edit]Also, I know that the wireless peripherals are bad for gaming, and tried my hardest to talk him out of it, but he insisted. Looks like it's wireless until he realizes otherwise.[/edit]

[edit2]The fatal1ty is a sweet looking board, but it only has one x16 slot, and he may want to double up GPUs down the road.[/edit2]



That's correct but all P67 boards (with the exception of those with NF200 chips on them) have one 16x slot. When using two cards, both slots go to 8x8x which is proven to have minimal to no performance difference.

I'm sorry Robilar, I meant to say that the board only has one PCI-e 2.0 slot, period. Unless I am seriously missing something because my coffee hasn't taken hold yet, the board looks like crossfire/SLI is completely out of the question. Granted, he may still want to go with it just in case he wants to upgrade to LGA 2011 anyways.

However, your suggestion moved me to choose this one for the build:

All PCI-E slots nowadays are rev2.0. They do not entirely have to say "SLI/Crossfire" ready provided there are more than 1 PCI-E x16 or x8 lane.

That Asrock board is also very nice and great in terms of value and can definitely do up to 3 way I'd go up for it.
