Hi guys,
I now have an Intel CPU but would like to upgrade to the 720 BE. This means I have to get a new MB too, but I'd like to use my DDR2 Ram still. I would like to get a board able to have 2 PCIe at 16x on crossfire if it's not to costly. I guess 16x+8x would be ok if I cant afford the better option.

Any and all input welcome!

PS: What else do I need to get if I want to get this CPU as OEM? Will getting a MB along with it suffice?
PPS: What do you think of this board?
Will this board and the 720 BE work with my DDR2 667 Ram?

Get the retail boxed version of the 720 for the included heatsink and 3 year warranty. That biostar board should work fine; one reviewer said it worked with his 667 ram.
