  1. Do you mean 'ATX' motherboard (which is the form factor of the one you list)? I'm not sure that any of the form factors come in an 8 x 8 size. You certainly can go to: http://www.newegg.com/ and do a product search on all 1150 MoBos and see what the price comparison is in all of the different size categories. That's the easiest way to answer your question.

    I am pretty much sure that by 8x 8x he meant PCI Express 3.0 8x. You know the PCI Express 3.0 8x gives exactly the same bandwidth as a PCI Express 2.0 x16. So it should be good for handling any current graphics card just fine.

    Anyways can I know what is your budget for motherboard and overall budget of the build? I might be able to suggest something better.
  3. Yes , i mean atx motherboard. I try to lower motherboard cost without bottlenecking 2 gpus
  4. Are you going for AMD Crossfire or Nvidia SLI?
  5. amd crossfire
  6. And what are the rest of your specs? I mean the CPU? And do you want to overclock?
  7. No, i dont want to overlock.I will have intel i5 4570 cpu
