CPU = phenom II 955 ( prefer am3+) for future proofing but not that important
Graphics = 6870 crossfire in future, latest PCIe proffered

USB 3 would be nice

If you want to properly crossfire at x8/x8, and not just crossfireX where the second slot stays at X4 speed

The cheapest option is the Asrock 970 extreme4

There is an MSI model that can do 8x/8x on a 970 chipset too but they have VRM problems and you should not buy one

The 8x 8x ones are two expensive, maybe I'll use a dual tou single tou Xfire so 16 and 4 might be better and cheaper
Also, I just ordered an asrock extreme3 is there a difference? Should I cancel it? What's the price in Gbp

Also if anyone knows cheapest hardware store in Manchester it'd be much appreciated
