Intel Motherboard Advice

I am looking at getting a motherboard to match the I5-760 chip and was wanting something with 8x for crossfire support. My question is:

Is the following motherboard a good choice?

ASUS SABERTOOTH 55i LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131601

I know it does not have USB 3.0 or Sata 6, but wont the socket be out of date long before either USB 3 or Sata 6 are in regular usage?

Thanks in advance for any opinions.

  1. Since you want to crossfire why limit yourself at 2 x 8x go for 2 x 16x

  2. Thanks for the reply but unless Im missing something, that board only has x4 on the other PCIe slots.
