I currently have this in my system
CPU-Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor
GPU-6870 Radeon Diamond
PSU-COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M700 RS-700-AMBA-D3 700W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular
Motherboard- ASRock P55 Extreme LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
Memory-CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) + PNY XLR8 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

I want to crossfire 6850 and a 6870 but I was told by Tech Support that I need to buy a new motherboard so I did but someone refered me to a MSI LGA 1155 and I bought it without realizing that it was the wrong CPU slot. So now I need to find a motherboard that will support crossfire of those two cards and dual memory slotsx4 it also needs to be LGA 1156 Thanks a lot guys have a merry christmas! :hello:

Just wondering is there a difference between this one and a higher priced one I have a limit up to 160$ just want to get a good one and be sure it works with my graphics cards because the Asrock P55 Extreme does not it is only compatible with Radeons 4xxx. Thanks man!

I found this one on newegg would it work?

yeah thats good too, it has a couple more usb ports and some other ports you probably won't use but if you like that one better I'd say go fo it.
