I don't know what board to choose, either this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

i want to Crossfire/SLI, but the asus $95 one has 1x 16 , 1x 4. other ones has 1x 16, 1x 8. but the better one is $45 more. So i dont know , is it worth getting the better one? or should i stick with the asus? which i could still crossfire in.

if you think you can find a better board for around same price range , i would like the suggestions, i bought my whole build expect the mobo.

for reference, here's my build:

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6811156223
Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks in advance!

Generally, I recommend the 990FX for SLI (x16/x16), the GPU you listed is an AMD (crossfire). Further, the 970 is fine with being (x8/x8), there's no GPU out there that will/can saturate PCIe 2.0 x8 lanes. The MOBO's in this side-by-side might help - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...
