Hi, has anybody used a Zotac MoBo yet? I have an AMD P2 940 for my ASUS Crosshair V1.
If I have an issue with it I might go for a new Mobo.
Zotac seems about 1/2 the price of a lot of others.
Maybe it's only 1/2 as good. Any input please?

Well, Zotac doesn't seem to be too bad - they offer lifetime warranties on their GTX 480s, although they are a newer partner of nVidia. As for you having to get a new mobo - you'd have to make sure it's AM2+, because your Phenom II X4 940 won't fit in any AM3 socket. If you need SLI support, then you'd have to get a nForce chipset based motherboard, which supports at least two PCI-e 16x lanes at 8x.

Thanks, Lmeow,
Yes, I know I have to stick with the SLI stuff as I have 2 8800GTX cards.
Zotac seem to only have one ATX board of 750a.
But if you don't mind I'll ask you directly, can SLI cards be used in crossfire supporting MoBo's?

Nope, you can't use two 8800GTX in SLI with motherboards which only support CrossFireX. Ones which support CFX and SLI will support both. The only SLI ready AM2+ motherboard on newegg that I can find is the ASUS M4N72-E.
