Need new Motherboard

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm getting my first Intel setup, if anyone can help... Im looking for an intel motherboard that supports quad crossfire (crossfirex) I don't know the chipsets for intel... Can someone direct me towards the correct motherboard?

All ready have DDR2 memory, can't afford DDR3.

Ive got 2 HD3870X2's and want to put them to use.

The DDR3 support for the 790

@ RainStryke

You need an X38 mobo with 2x PCIe x16 2.0 lanes

A P35 mobo will bottleneck the second card, there will be an improvement but the second card won't be fully taken advantage of.
