Nobody seems to have a decent Crossfire build may try this out. Plus it is less expensive and better "on account of the new review since new drivers."

yeah, that's pretty astounding. I would take that setup any day. BTW, two thumbs up for the evga board- however, I think there is a different eVGA 680i board that would be better for OC'ing the quad- the TR is designed around the core2, but supports quad of course. Still, eVGA is the bomb

The first build looks stellar!
One thing about the MB though, the NF63 is the first revision of this board that does not work well with the quads and if you are getting the Q6600 I would stay away from it. The NF68-A1/T1 (T1=one year warranty, A1=lifetime warranty) is the on you want, it's the one that was changed by EVGA to be compatable with the quads; although they both works you will get poor performance from the NF63 on a quad.
