Nothing major is required to change. 1) You could drop down to the Corsair 750TX, if there is a combo deal, and still be good for Crossfire. 2) You could look to cut cost with your motherboard and just pick up a 890GX board. You will see little difference between x16,x16 from x8,x8. muckle September 3, 2010 4:02:44 AM tecmo34 said:It will all mess together just fine.

Also regarding the mobo.. i've heard the FX boards are better for gaming. The degree would dictate the price. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer batuchka September 3, 2010 6:33:43 AM The FX gains over the 8/8 CF boards i would say does not justify the price $$and CHIV would be about the most overpriced 890FX as per the findings of our very own forums' 890FX shoot out here http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-890fx-crosshair... If i were u i would prioritise hitting a HD 5870 1st and working backwards? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
