Can anyone recommend a good motherboard that supports both DDR3 memory AND a crossfire video card setup. Ive looked high and low and most of the boards cost in excess of $300. I would prefer a board with the x48 chipset however almost all mobo's with that chipset cost an arm and a leg AND got mixed reviews :pt1cable:

If we had our hearts set on DDR3 memory, the battle would be between Asus and Intel. The DX48BT2 had the best overall performance, and placed second only to the DDR2-equiped DFI X48-T2R in maximum CPU clock. The P5E3 Premium WiFi-AP @n Edition supported higher memory and bus speeds, and the actual performance difference between the two was negligible. The DX48BT2 is a few features short of direct competition with the P5E3 Premium, but it’s also around $100 cheaper. How much are a few extra onboard components worth to you?
