the difference between x16 and x8 is the speed of the slots. But with video cards now the difference between x16 and x8 is not noticable.

i would recommend this for a motherboard.

what are you looking at to cool the 955?

I think the difference between a x16+x8 crossfire vs x16+x4 setup is like 5% and since you asked for the cheapest board I think even something like this ASRock 770 would be fine unless that 5% really matters to you or someone knows a better bang for buck board close to its price.

I would highly recommend the asus board, because it has the newer chipset, you have to think my board has the 790GX chipset, which is from 2008 and wasn't new then, so why would the 770 be that good?

EDIT: what about Jetway?

I have never really heard anything good about them, but they work, that is about it. They aren't anything special. Personally i would go with an asus board. What is this computer for?
