Will I be able to run crossfire with this mobo?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
GIGABYTE GA-EP35C-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35
Just bought this from a member here on OCN and using it for a build for my son.

It only has one PCI-e 16x slot, so no.

Edit: What does your son plan on using it for?

Thanks. If you are really set out to have two GPU's though, try the Radeon HD 3870X2, its slightly less powerful than two 3870's in crossfire; but to be honest, getting a Radeon HD 4850 should be more than enough for playing games.

Cool, I have never used an intel cchipset or ATI for that matter. I just want a cheap build that I can have my 6year old game on. He is always on mine so for his b-day he asked that we build one together. Thanks for the suggestion on GPU.
