More about crossfire hybrid
  1. One PCI-E slot makes it none of the above, it cannot support more than a single card which rules out SLI and CF and doesnt have onboard graphics which rules out hybrid crossfire. It can only be used with a single GPU
  2. This one is similar and supports crossfire at 8x/8x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157198

  7. IMO, get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128510
    SLI, Crossfire, and AM3+, so you don't need a new Mobo if you ever upgrade and you can SLI in the future.

    thx but no thx its way out of my budget
  9. If you're just gaming, 4GB of RAM would be enough.
    If you still can't squeeze that in, at least get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131734

  11. Best answer
    No, but it supports AM3+ for a CPU upgrade.
    Neither the boards you've posted supports SLI, nor true crossfire as X16/X4 scaling is horrible.

    Cheapest SLI board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130235
    Cheapest Crossfire board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157198
  12. should i get this instead
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131668&cm_re=amd_880_atx-_-13-131-668-_-Product

    it said its a crossfirex and a hybrid crossfire x
    so im assuming it can use a sli gpu i could b wrong
  13. See above.
    The only AMD baords that support SLI is the ones with the Nvidia chipsets, then the 990X and 990FX boards.

    Crossfire doesn't do anything in your case, you have a GTX460.
    Even if you switch cards to something ATI/AMD, X16/X4 scaling makes it worthless as 2 cards will turn out to be only 30% better than one.

    But if you like the board...:>
