Crossfire Motherboard

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I think I am going to make the switch to ATI cards as I just sold the video card in my sig rig. What's a good, crossfire supported, motherboard that will run my sig rig with a couple of 4870s?
Thanks!

Depends how much you want to spend. X38/X48 are great choices but a bit pricey. P35/P45 are good too, but don't run full 16x 16x.

Right now I have a P35. Does the motherboard in my sig rig support crossfire?

If you are planning crossfire go with either X38 or X48 board.

The cheapest decent board is the one i just picked up, the Asus P5E. full X38 (16x16x) and under $200

P5E on Newegg is $235 shipped (I know they aren't the only shop but good place to check prices! ).

I would also look into the DFI LANPARTY DK X38-T2R
