was wondering on a motherboard like this if there would be much loss in fps. on a tight budget an thinken of slight future and wondered if i put 2x 760 insli on a board like this if it would suffer much as opposed to having 2x pcie 3.0 x16lanes

these boards have 1 x16lane and one x4lane both pcie supporting a graphiocs card and sli

sounds like a wierd setup but would love to see this board benched against a 180-200 dollar board

anyone have a good answer for this question as to loss of fps? whats the pro's and cons here of having one lane x4:"? i -plan to run a 2560x1440 IPS monitor

1) Unless I missed it somewhere in the specifications, this board does not support SLI.
2) The supported Crossfire configuration would be limited to PCI-E 2.0 speeds.
3) The supported Crossfire configuration would be limited to PCI-Ex4 bandwidth.

This is, in no way, a realistic multi-graphics card motherboard.

Yup. At a minimum, you want x8/x8 PCI-E 2.0. Personally, I haven't seen it but ideally, PCI-E 3.0 x16/x16.
