Solved Mobos prices/options Tags: Motherboards Crossfire Product Last response: July 12, 2010 3:59 AM in Motherboards Share snoogins July 11, 2010 3:33:12 AM 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 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 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 More about : mobos prices options rolli59 a c 671 V Motherboard July 11, 2010 3:57:29 AM For people planning on a single GPU setup I would say something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... the board you linked to is micro ATX I like ATX. It has all the features that you need. snoogins July 11, 2010 8:18:04 AM 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?
