Hey guys,<br />
<br />
This has probably been posted before, but I had never heard of a 965P chipset that supports crossfire.<br />
<br />
Anyway, it seems MSI have one out now.<br />

Not availiable yet in Australia, but it is good new for those of us who want high FSBs and yet be able to crossfire.

I think it's more like a driver issue.<br><br>
Also, do note it's x16, x4 bandwidth, which isn't all that great.

Bandwidth does matter. The x16, x4 config reduces performance with about 10% or so. Of course, still very good, but a bit lower FPS and so on.

YEah, they'll run fine. A slight hit in performance, given that the second one runs at only X4. But still, good Crossfire performance.
