To fully utalioze your 2 x 3870X2 cards, the X38 and X48 chipset provides CrossfireX at PCIE 2.0 16 x 16.
That I know should I get a Abit IX38 Quad, Ga-X48T-DQ6 or DFI DK X48-T2RS???
The three you mentioned al have Award BIOS. I would get an ASUS with AMI. My preference. Gigadud or ABIT , unless you are prepared to deal with all the 'hidden' BIOS adjustments of a DFI. I have owned them all, ASUS is my preference.
I order a Ga-X48T-DQ6. The Asus will not work for me.
