Ordering new Mobo ( P5E Planned - seeking input )

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am ordering the first patch of parts for a new system, as my 3870 died, taking the pcie x16 slot of my G33M with it, im going to put this system aside for my mediacenter, as the x4 slot still works and i dont need any other slots than both pci slots on the board.

anyways, i want to crossfire an HD4870 with a 4870X2 on release, and i need a crossfire-able HD4K worthy board.

PLANNED: ASUS P5E

other parts include:
E8500 OEM ( neweggs $220 deal too good to pass up in this case )
2x2GB Mushkin DDR2 1066
PCP&C 750W
Lian-Li A05B ( minor mods planned, such as installation of laptop 44pin DVD burner )

any recommendations on other boards welcome, please make it snappy too, i am ordering VERY SOON.
