More about please check spec order
  1. why are you looking at a crossfire mother board? ar you looking to go for dual graphics cards. If i was only planing on using a single graphics card i would go with a board with a nf4 ultra chipset. The nvidia chipset and the ati graphics cards make a killer duo. if i was going for a killer motherboard i would look at a dfi infinity series board w/ a nf4 ultra chipset. it will cost less and it has some killer features.
