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
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?
