The VRM issue is not something many people pay attention to, a lot of people will cheap out on motherboards
CrossfireX above 8x-8x would only be useful with extremely high end cards by the way, if you're looking to save some cash perhaps an M4A89GTD would do as well.

+1. Very few ppl actually can use 16x-16x PCI-e.
You'd need 2x Monster GPU and 1x Monster CPU

Ahh I see I see. That helps! If that is the case, then I certainly can save some money and not buy the higher end boards with the two x16 PCIe 2.0 slots. As for hitting a wall with my CPU, well I guess that is to be foreseen. Everything has a limit. As for the VRM thing, I discovered the thread about phase control and VRM protection after I bought a new MB. I am glad I am better informed now. Thanks for everyone's help.
