Which am3+ board? need help from you tech heads Tags: Motherboards Overclocking Product Last response: September 30, 2012 12:54 AM in Overclocking Share samraptor September 29, 2012 10:19:59 PM m5a99x evo r2 m5a99fx pro r2 which one would be better, the only real difference i can see is the £25 price tag and that the second one can support dual graphics cards in x16 x16 rather than x16 x8, perhaps im missing something? i would go on to crossfire radeon hd 7770 in a year, would the x16 x16 mode help me more than x16 x8? or should i spend £25 on something else?

And the difference between 990X and 990FX isn't a very large one. Regardless, for only £25 more, why not overkill it? (Slight sarcasm, but slight truth, too). Can't find your answer ? Ask !
