So are you going to go with a crossfire setup?

If you are, Gigabyte makes a really nice X38 board for $199. Unfortunately it is out of stock...

I'm running the ASUS P5E and think it is a great board.


The X38 boards are better for crossfire then the P35 boards because both PCI-E lanes are x16. The P35 has 1 at x16 and the other at only x4.

Unfortunately, Newegg deactivated a bunch of Gigabyte mobos(X38-DQ6, X38-DS4, ect). Don't get the EX38-DS4, one of the 2 pci-e lanes is only 4x. Try and pick up a X38-DS4 instead. The X38-DS4 has 2 x16 where the EX38-DS4 has 1 x16 and 1 x4
