Now let me get this straight, most of the time you pay 140ish for a mobo you get a doable form of crossfire, correct?

in the recommended systems the mobo linked for amd was

139.99

I am looking for a x6 mobo, and came across this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
89.99

Now, for someone who doesn't plan to xfire, is there any reason to pay 50 more?

Why do most ~1k builds have 140 dollar mobos? Wouldn't a 89-100 one suffice?

Thanks

I do like that motherboard - thanks

but just to clarify, most people who are going the single gpu route can skip the 140dollar boards?

is that correct? (most other features can be found closer to 100)

Yes there is no reason for $140 boards with a single GPU. Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and etc make feature laden boards in the $100 range for people that build single GPU systems.
