umm..no x48/x38 is much better for crossfiring than P45, full 16x16x bandwidth. i vote x48, actually i vote a good cheaper x38. all the same.

Thread Starter 
Price diff from x38 to x48 is low, which was why I was thinking x48. But, bottom line price/performance is a concern. I could just run an x2 card in the single pcie x16 on the p45. That also means replacing a card vs adding a second card later. p5q may run cooler and oc easier? I noticed newegg has alot of open box maximus and p5e boards. Argh, my head hurts.
