Hi,
What mobo would be the best for this setup?

Memory:

TWIN2X2048-8500C5
INTEL CORE 2 E6600
2 x CAVIAR 320GB SATA2 7200RPM 16MB
Msi Radeon 1950 xtx (I would love a 1900 xt, but there are none in stock)

I have read great things about the AW9D max board, but can it handle the memory? I would like a mobo with crossfire support, help me please =D

i've got the P5W DH and i think its a stunning mobo, but the AW9D max has been getting the higher FSB numbers if your interested in overclocking.i havent heard of any memory problems with either of these boards my self.(someone please correct me if im wrong)

also i dont know how clever it is putting all that money in to 1950 xtx with DX 10 just around the corner with all them shiny new GPU'S

The GFX card choise is super dumb i know, but I dont have a computer atm, and i have been waiting many months to buy one.... ....I am aware that DX10 is just around the corner, but I just can not wait any longer.....

fair point looks like it will be a great build, are you going to overclock at all?

Heyah,
Yepp, I want to OC, and from what i have been reading, the AW9D max should be sexier for that
