P/Z68/77 For cheap 1155 Crossfire?


I'm looking into getting a second 6950 to run my eyefinity setup, however at the moment i have an i5 650 with a foxconn p55a mobo. So i'm looking for an upgrade of around £300 for the mobo/ram/cpu. However with the release of ivybridge alot of the motherboards have changed to Z77 and the prices have gone up from what I can tell.

I hope to get an i5 2500k and 8GB ram which leaves about 100-120 for the motherboard, is it possible to get a crossfire motherboard for that money? Help would be appreciated.. thanks!

    Thanks for the reply however the boards you listed are 4x and correct me if i'm wrong but doesnt that mean that the cards perform alot worse than if an 8x or 16x configuration?

    Also thats in dollars, so my budget would be $180 if using US prices.

    Thanks for the help anyways though.

    Edit : Looking at the biostar one it seems to have 8x ( 2 x PCI-E x16 3.0 Slot (SLi / CFX x8)
    1 x PCI-E x16 2.0 Slot (x4)
    At an amazing price.. hopefully i can find it in the UK!

    Edit2: So it seems that the Biostar and Foxconn ones are both 8x, neither of which are available in the UK from what I can tell. Damnit.
