Good, cheap crossfire motherboard

Hello, i am currently running an Asus m4a87td evo motherboard but i now wish to go crossfire with HD4890's, and since my board only supports x16 and x4 crossfire, i am looking to upgrade, my board is perfect for me, except for the x4.

can someone recommend one for me?

    That board is still one slot x16, and one x4.

    990 series boards should be x16/x16, or might work x8/x8 with two cards. Either way, here's one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128508
  4. Umm that board you linked does not support 8x/8x it says (16/4).
  5. That one has a mean price tag.

  10. thanks for the help guys :D any more suggestions? I'd like to make an informed purchase and get the best bang for my buck. :)
  11. i forgot to mention i need at least 1 open pci slot for my wireless card.
  12. pretty sure all of those have at least one pci slot that will be open for you.
  13. have to remember i'll be using 2 dual slot cards though
  14. any more?
  15. look at the pictures of the moterboards suggested on newegg.....so far the only one that I THINK will wind up having an unblocked pci slot for your wireless card is that 990 series one.
