Yeah, the only thing I don't like is the 24 pin connector and the 12v connector's location...kinda bad placement, but other than that, it's awesome.

Default Re: What are they best motherboards?

i want a board for gaming, money really isnt an option. you can see my specs in my sig at the moment. im also gunna upgrade to 2GB xms Corsair. i dont know weather to get a crossfire board or not but found this one: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Socket_939.html , its abit expensive but what the hell, tell me what you think... is it ok compared to a nFocre 4 chipset?

Edit: would i need a crossfire ready card straight away, or could i run it with just the x850xt as the master card for the time being?
