Well, I'm finally building a whole new box, and decided to go as top of the line as I can. The biggest problem, as always, is finding everything that's compatible with each other. And that's almost done, aside from the always annoying task of trying to find *THE ONE* mobo, the perfect combination of features and stability in order to make everything as perfect as it can possibly get, Microsoft OS nonwithstanding.
I've been poking around a lot to try and find a great mobo, and I've been hearing a lot of positive reviews about ASUS' P5E Deluxe. Looking at the features that it supports, my heart skipped a couple beats. "This is it," I thought to myself, "the one I've been looking for. It will do everything I ever need it to do, and I'll never have to upgrade my computer again." You all know the feeling.
Until I came to the graphics support, and saw the kiss of death. CROSSFIRE X ready. I know that in the world of mobo, you have two choices. SLI, or Crossfire. I'm a big Nvidia fan, and have been since the long-gone days of the GeForce 2, and I was looking forward to doing an SLI setup. Basically, the question is:
Is there an equivalent mobo to the Asus P5E Deluxe which supports SLI, or should I just suck it up and do Crossfire?
