So today I'm buying a new mobo for a rig: phenom ii x4 955 BE, 4gb ocz ddr3 and 2 5770s and what would be the best mobo to support crossfirex. And whats the best bang for the buck? It's funny cos when I look for Crossfire mobos it always comes up with mobos with 770 or 870 chipsets which aren't supposed to compatible with crossfire
xD why is that? and whats best: 2.0 x16 crossfire, 8x/8x or 2* 16x?

FX motherboards can do x16/x16
GX are usually x8/x16

5770s can't max the bandwidth of x8, so either chipset will be fine.

Asus
Gigabyte
MSI

I'd check out boards from those brands in that order.
