Which MotherBoard is capable of this???????

Im trying to find a motherboard that could run at x16x16 in crossfire mode because in the future i will crossfire or Sli, depends what card i get at the end of the month, also accept i7,i5,i3 CPUS and Sata 6gbs. dont really care for USB3 i can live with slow speed on USB as long as i get tip top performance on PCIe and Sata

I have seen one motherboard like that ASUS P6X58D Premium but I'm not sure if it can run x16x16 in sli/CF and its also a little pricey. I wouldn't want to spend more then 250$ and still have it for long way to come with maximum possibility to upgrade components without having to buy new motherboard in a year and half when i want to buy new processor or new graphic card.

I found this http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=CadI5xNLwMYopFyJ what do you think about this motherboard ????

I know I'm asking for allot but is this possible ? Please give suggestions of different motherboards

    If you read the specs, it says: 2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (single at x16 or dual at x8/x8 mode)

    If you really need x16/x16, then get an X58 chipset motherboard. The Asus P6X58D Premium meets your requirements: 3 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (at x16/x8/x8 or x16/x16/x1 mode) However it requires a socket 1366 CPU like the i7-920.
  2. i'd suggest u get a core i7 930 with a giga-byte ga-x58a-ud3r... its around $210 and has X16/X16 capabilities... no sata 6 gbps without sacrificing on the pci lanes though :(

    But you get usb 3.0

  3. This board can run 16/16 on the 1156 platform using NF200

    This dosent support Sata 3 but you can buy an external card that can do that.
