Mobo for i5 760 & crossfire under 150 €

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'll be buying a i5 760, and i need a new LGA1156 Motherboard for it.

I have a few candidates:

Asus P7P44D-E, LGA1156, P55, DDR3, USB3.0, Sata 6.0GB/s, ATX
-2x 16x PCI-E slots for Crossfire (this will run at 8x/8x,so that i have no loss in performance, right?) ~150€

MSI P55-GD65, LGA1156, P55, DDR3, CrossFireX & SLI, ATX
-2x PCI-E 2.0 x16 (same question as above) ~130€

Asus P7P55D Pro, LGA1156, P55, DDR3, Crossfire X & SLI, ATX
-3x PCI-E x16 Crossfire X & SLI 8x/8x/4x ~145€

If you know of a better bang for the same buck motheboard, link it for me but make sure it will run the i5 760 and it has support for CF

hi, i have the same configuration, an i5 760 and two gigabyte 6870, just put the card in the x8 x8 slot and it will run smooth. I didn't have any problem, the mbo looks nice, OC nicely.

There is no much difference between x8 x8 or x16 x16 in games , only in benchmarks (2-3% loss of performance). I think all of the 1156 mobo support only x8 x8, coz i saw that even the Maximus formula III have x8 x8. bye
