ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Just would like this build rated, I want to know if its feasible; please don't completely ignore everything I write and just give suggestions (that is to say, unless you can suggest something cheaper and better, please don't). Mainly, I worry about fitting twin 5850s in this case, but I've found reviews that confirm that it has enough space; this is my first foray into dual-carding, and I'm unsure just how much more space I really need.
both i would say rank very high bang for $$ for their respective features/performance Do not waste time with overpriced, outdated 700 series multi GPU capable boards Do note i have built with just about brand of mobo out there and since 2008 for AM2+ platforms (then AM3)
Lastly if i were you i just go 955BE + HD 5870 in single GPU config - upgrade GPU accordingly down the road
I've been hearing some bad things about that card that they put up for you. Sadly I heard them after I ordered it. I would advise that you wait until mine arrives then I could give you an accurate review of it.
