my bet would be on the micro atx board
EDIT: you might wanna research about whats better on pci express multi gpu configurations
x8/x8 or x16/x4, for what i know in x16/x4 one of the gpu's(the one in the x4 pci express) will hold back the other 1

Personally i prefer x8/x8

Okay, I'll get a PCI-E x8/x8 motherboard. I'm just having trouble finding a good motherboard that fits all my needs.

GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD4-B3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Found this, says nothing about SLI/Crossfire support though. Think this'd be good?

Bump.

Yes, that board runs at 8x/8x when Xfire or SLI. UD4 is a pretty decent board. And, not to mention that it looks pretty sweet!
