What do you all think?
Whats a good mobo? Is the crosshair worth it?
Is a jump to ati better than sli?
The best mobo depends on your needs: Are you looking for the best OC board? Best "value"? PCI-X slots? Specific info is good
As for crossfire, it's not bad - but it's not a great value. If you're looking for the absolute top performance possible, then running dual video cards is great - but for the extra money you spend to do it, it's not a huge performance increase.
You can just go with an 8000 series Nvidia card in a couple weeks. DX10 support, great card, and not a "horrible" price.
