That's a Crossfire board. No point spending money on this unless you're planning on getting 2 ATI cards in the future.

I honestly don't see the point in spending more than what the MSI Neo4-F costs if you're not going to use SLI. It's $80 bucks on Newegg and will overclock with the best of the boards out there and the Neo4 series have won numerous gold and editor's choice awards. I have no desire to buy a new board and have nothing but positive things to say about it. You can use the extra $80 bucks you save to upgrade something else in your system. Btw, as far as the comments on Newegg about the Seasonic, I wouldn't put much merit into any of those "reviews". A large portion of the people on there have a very poor understanding of computers and there's also no way to verify that they've ever even used the product. Those reviews are nothing more than a public bulletin board full of misinformation. If you would like a 3rd party review, google yourself a professional review.....not some pimple faced kid bashing the Seasonic because he bought a different power supply and wants the world to follow suit.

The MSI looks pretty nice but under supported CPU's it only has Athlon 64 FX/Athlon 64/Sempron.... I'm going for a dual core. Will it still work or do I need one that supports the X2's?

They just don't update the listing to say that it's supported. It'll work just fine. Btw, if you're still unsure about the Seasonic, here's one of the toughest reviews you'll ever find. They ran the psus HARD and very few even survived. The Seasonic won along with the smaller Fortron.

Nice man, thanks. One more thing though, I just watched that crytek video in the video games section and those graphics are just ridiculous. I feel like I might need SLI at some point if that's the next generation? Or maybe I'll just get a non-SLI board now, and then just upgrade for DDR2 Ram and SLI in like 2 years or so. What do you think?

I'm not a fan of SLI or Crossfire. The technology simply isn't up to speed to make it worthwhile yet. It can act buggy and doesn't work in all games. In my opinion, you're better off saving that money and when it's time to upgrade again, sell your old card and buy 1 of the faster cards instead of 2 older ones. I look at it like this, why dump more money into old technology? That is what you're doing when you buy another older card to match what you have in SLI or Crossfire. Look around at some benchmarks and you'll see why I'm not impressed. By the time SLI and Crossfire are mainstream, you'll be on a whole new system wanting SLI2 or Crossfire2.

that looks like a pretty sweet monitor, expensive though. I definately want a good monitor though... don't want to spend all this money on a computer and then get a crappy monitor cause that's what you need to see all the other stuff in action... Thanks for the input
