You see my original plan is to get a super RV770 http://www.tomshardware.com/news/ATI-AMD-RV770,5796.htm... or might just get a regular 4870. I want to stick with the super rv770 but if the 4870x2 is better. I might even crossfire 2 4870's when the prices go down. I;m not even sure right now lol.

But I will be sure be overclocking and will be using an e8400 and this ocz ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227267.

Like I don't really understand all the differences between the different mobos. If im going to stick with a single grafics cards I could just get the p45 right and save a bunch of money?

if I do crossfire I want an x38 or an x48. thats another thing I don't understand...whats the difference between those 2 mobos? I know both are highly suggestive if your going crossfire because you need it to fully use the speed of crossfire but what other capabilities does it have over the p45. What does the x48 have over the x38.

I was originally going to go with this DFI LP LT X38-T2R LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813136042

Oh and I am going to raid 5 as well if that matters I think.
