MotherBoard : Asus H87M-PLUS
Memory : Kingston Hyper-X 8GB DDR3
HardDrive : Seagate 1TB 7200rpm SATA


but Asus H87M-PLUS is not available in my place and when i look on what is available board i found Asus H87M-E... so someone explain to me what the difference of the two? which of them will do best along with the other components?

Thanks!

    Hi,
    CrossfireX Support for the PLUS version.
    PCI (PLUS), vs PCIe x1 (E) slots.
    If using single graphics card, I'd buy the cheapest one.

    If using two ATI video cards, you can do it with the PLUS version.
    However, the x16 x4 is not the optimum choice for Crossfire.

  5. must state something here; on small cards pci-e x 4 only holds back by iro 5%.
    Adding another cheap (2nd hand?) card to existing one will still scale for the money.
    E.G. 3850, 5670, etc. You wont get double the horse power, but for a few bucks it should be worthwhile
    if you cant afford a bigger new card.
