uuuummmmmm, the M5A97 LE R2.0 is a motherboard and the AMD FX-8320 is a CPU! Do you have any idea of what you are talking about?

yep, the ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ is a mother board and so is the M5A97 LE R2.0 :)  Check the title again :p

Who will crossfire/sli at X16 ? i d rather get a mobo with chipset 990X and a better processor than an expensive board plus weak processor.

The asus 990x board is only $10 cheaper than the 990fx one that isnt the crosshair V or sabertooth. The gigabyte 990fx ud3 can be found on sale for under $140. If u going to go cheaper with a 990x board being around $10 or so then go cheaper with a 970 chipset like the m5a97 r2 or gigabte 970 ud3/ud3p. Crossfire x16 isnt a selling point as cards wont be bottlenecked at x8, and most 990fx boards dont even have crossfire/sli in x16 for at least two cards.
