best 939 mobo out there - Page 2

Eh, the first batch of CrossFire mobos have been lackluster. Take a look at the reviews on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136165.

very funnny

IF you really NEEED to go ATi and NEED a crossfire motherboard i would WAIT for better motherboards to come out. It's true half the people on newegg have no clue what anything means but some of them do and with crossfire in its wee early stages nothing is to its full potential yet.

Take sli for example. When motherboards first came out for it, there chipsets were kinda buggy. However, as time went on the bugs decreased and at the final stages DFI came out with the LanParty SLI-DR. This is the best type of board for the overclocker as it limits almost nothing. However, it can be picky on some things such as ram. Some cosrair won't work with it and some OCZ, maybe also some other brands i'm not aware of.

Either way crossfire isn't developed to its potential yet while SLI is. SLI is a better choice as well as NVIDIA is controlling the PCI-E market and uppermarket while ATi is making more cards for the $$$.

Go with the SLI-DR, if you know a bit about overclocking then you won't regret it

With results that "cannot be published" which is bs. And also if the X1800XT beats the 7800GTX in most things on single cards, then why would it not beat it in crossfire? Besides that though, theres a big price difference between a GTX and a X1800XT, and a gigongous difference between those two cards and the 7800GTX 512.

That's the thing though, the x1800xt doesn't beat a GTX in everything when it's a single card comparison. They trade off depending on what game is being tested. As far as discrediting Anandtech, don't know what to say. I think they're one of the most respected sites in this industry and have proven to be unbiased and reliable.

Its just word against word though, doesnt fly.. Crossfire is suppose to be more efficent, but then again SLI has been out alot longer than crossfire, and im sure the NF5 will be tweaked to deal with Crossfire. Its expected to be realeased early next year, so thats when we can see some benchmarks .. (wouldnt it just be great if SLI and Xfire were 100% efficent?)

Basically, this comes down to whoever releases their product later after their competitor wins. So the cycle will continue on and on...
