Can you do a Quad Crossfire on EVGA's 4x SLI Classified Board?

Basically what it says in the title, Can you do a quad crossfire config with 4 Radeon 5770 cards on the EVGA Classified Quad SLI board? here's a link to the newegg page for the mobo:

I want to build a PC with this configuration so I get DX11 but I don't know much about the compatibility of the components. Might just wait till Nvidia's DX11 cards come out but I don't know. Anyway thx for any help/answers anyone might have.

    It would support it.. but why 4 5770s....A 5970 is about the same power as that

    You might need to change your case aswell.

    2x5770 = 5870 and 5970=2x5870s

    That would also let you buy a much cheaper board as you would only ned one PCI-E slot.

    Or you could wait and SLI gtx 480 2-way.

    Not even all games support crossfire. so with the games that dont support it then you would be only using 1 card.
  2. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum

    The EVGA X58 4-WAY SLI, can also support Crossfire in the same configuration. Just make you sure that you have enough PSU and a very big case (like a Thermaltake XASER VI).

    If you want very good performance, don't spend you money on the EVGA mobo, with one 5970 or two 5870 in Crossfire mode you can get a very good performance
  3. +2 for 5970.... awesome performance... saves money on the mobo...
  4. Hey guys, thanks for the welcome and responses. I decided to go with an Asus P6T7 board.

    Here's the newegg URL for it if you wanna check it out: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131390

    Its a bit smaller, (E-ATX instead of XL-ATX) and use a Coolermaster HAF 932 case for this build. (Love this case btw, awesome looking and TONS of huge fans and vents)

    Thanks again! looking forward to using this site.
