Has anyone considered the new Asus A8R-MVP?
I'm a logistics guy and used to checking out new stuff, in specs pages, availability and reviews. And I've noticed that this board is very overclockable (although I didn't hear the original poster ask about this), has HD audio, RAID2, SATA2 and a bunch of other neat features, and....
is CROSS-FIRE compatible!
I am somewhat of an ATi fan (although I was willing to grudgingly accept the SLI as being l33t the past year) but besides that, I do get the impression that Cross-Fire is just a more flexible, nicer way to go than SLI.
So, if it has to be absolute, 8-phase, top-notch then I'd say the DFI Cross-Fire or the Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe, but if you want neat features like HD Audio and RAID5 but don't want to be left broke in the process, you'd be wise to at least check out the A8R-MVP from Asus.
Yes, I am aware than I am unable to write abridged emails. My apologies for this.
