Hey guys im looking for some help regarding my new build. As im not sure what kind of motherboard i need for crossfire and my budget is rather tight.
The things i want to put in right now are a 4970k processor with 1 r9 290 toxic with room for another in a year orso no clew on what case or motherboard i need could really use some the experts here.
This is what i allready got figured out.

these components combined are 984 euros.

I have a maximum budget of 1100ish euros theres some room to play around with.
The motherboard needs to be crossfire ready for r9 290's x 2 and the case should be a decent one with airflow.

You mean 4790k. :) 

Nice card.
Nice SSD.
Would not suggest EVGA for PSU, but won't really be a problem.

Here is a good motherboard at a nice price.

Chassis is a little bit more difficult since preference is important. But here is a decent options with decent airflow for Xfire R9 290s :

Now this obviously comes in over budget.
So now, you can drop cost in a few ways.

1. Cheaper(and actually more reliable PSU).

2. Not sure if I have the cheapest site used. So shop around.

3. Drop to an I5 4690K CPU instead, an I7 VERY rarely benefits gaming performance and when it does, its a very small difference as well. I7 is however good for editing and content creation.

4. Drop to a 120GB SSD, which is not ideal, but if needs must, then yeah.
Crucial SSDs are also a great lower cost alternative and on the 240GB version it saves you about 20Euro.

No problem. :) 

And a year or 2 will not change much, maybe 3+ will though.
