Would it be worth it to spend the extra money now on the 3200 then the 200?<br />

Want to go XFire but wondering if it would really be woth to have 2 16x or would 2 8x would be good for now.

Hmmm...I see the price differnce, but they both are 939....Try AM2 if you like AMD. Or go for a 975X with a C2D

the 200 overclocks like crap as far as I know. The 3200 is probably the way to go if you can afford it.

I'm not planning on a huge upgrade. AM2 is spendy and IMO right now I don't think it's worth it. Just want a good overclockable mobo with XFire.<br />

Alright thank you 'The_Jester', didn't know that the 200 didn't oc well. Will try to get the 3200.

Yes the 3200 chipset will offer a far better and stable overclock than the 200 with the ATI southbridge, which has some annoying issues. The only downside is the extra premium cost of the 3200.

I must have been lucky then as my RDX200 OC's just fine. There are some BIOS changes you need to make to boot i.e. disable usb mouse (usb mouse will work in winblows).<br><br>
