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?

Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and etc make feature laden boards in the $100 range for people that build single GPU systems.
