Hello all,
I was thinking of getting a crossfirex seetup with double Ati Radeon HD 6970, since i already have one of those installed. My problem is:
I don't know if my motherboard is compatible with CrossFireX. It's a ASUS M4N75TD with am3 socket.

Looking forward to see your answers!

That motherboard only supports SLI, not crossfire.

2x Nvidia cards
1x ATI/AMD card

Almost all new Motherboards support both SLI and Crossfire.


SO i have to get a new motherboard? Will any newer still work with my AMD phenom ii x6 1090t processor?

You can get a AM3+ motherboard, it will work with 1090t too which is am3 socket.

AM3+ supports both AM3 socket, and AM3+.

EDIT: I would suggest a AM3+ if you want to upgrade to a better processor in the future. The upcoming Steamroller Cpui's from AMD, will most likely run on AM3+ socket too.

this is one of their best AM3+ motherboards, i dont know your budget, so i just found this. This motherboard supports 4x gpus.
Your current motherboard is ATX size, so any ATX motherboard will fit in your case.

If this is too expensive, or you want a different one, go have a look yourself. Just make sure its AM3+ and ATX motherboard.
