The second mobo has a faster southvridge, is higher quality, and has 2 PCIe so you can Xfire later. m 0 l dirtmountain May 30, 2010 6:04:03 AM I disagree with Bob, he also sent you a link to newegg.com, not .ca. It would cost you about an extra $15 if you went with the AM3 870, not crossfire compatible, but a good board, nothing wrong with the 770 though. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... m 0 l duk3 May 30, 2010 6:17:32 AM If you want/need USB3 and SATA6: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... If not: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... m 0 l builderbobftw May 30, 2010 1:06:02 PM i would stay away from both of those: on the MSi: "2 (x16/x4)" FAIL! On the second one, no USB 3.0 or SATA 6.0gps, slow southbridge. m 0 l Chayce_1994 May 30, 2010 1:48:28 PM Whats bad about the MSi 2 (x16/14)? Sorry don't know much about this stuff. m 0 l builderbobftw May 30, 2010 2:11:49 PM ^ That means that for all intents and purposes you cant Xfire with it. Running 2 cards at 16x 4x is a huge waste. 4x means it only has 25% of the bandwith that it needs to selimnnate a bottleneck. SO no Xfire for you on that board.

Won't be xfire ing.. m 0 l builderbobftw May 30, 2010 3:37:50 PM You sure you wont want to add a second card later down the line? m 0 l Chayce_1994 May 30, 2010 10:07:43 PM Down the road the computer will probably be outdated, the way computers update today. hah. Its only for WoW anyways. m 0 l builderbobftw May 30, 2010 10:35:31 PM I would still pay the 20$ more for the nicer board. Just in case they make a new WOW grpahical setting or soemthing. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
