I have a couple questions. I was wondering how this mobo would handle intense gaming? I have it paired with a MSI 7870 and an I5 3570k with 8gb of Kingston HyperX. Does the mobo really matter for performance??

Also, I don't know the difference between SLI and AMD crossfire. I know this mobo can do crossfire, but I don't know if it can do SLI. What is the difference anyways?

No it does not matter for performance apart from it might not overclock the CPU as high as its more expensive siblings. It is a good budget board.

Thanks for the reply, rolli. So if the mobo can support Crossfirex, can it support SLI as well? It wasn't listed on the box as supporting SLI, but Crossfirex is listed.

No it does not support SLI only CF at X16 X4 which has about 10% average performance penalty compared to CF at X8 X8 like most CF/SLI boards.

Just get the LK... it's the $10 more version of the LX and supports CFX/SLI.

So if I were to Crossfire two 7870's, I would suffer performance wise?

average 10% performance loss compared to a board with CF @ X8 X8.
