ASRock X58 Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard (see link below) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I currently have a Radeon 5850 in there which I had intended to crossfire (more because I have not done it before and wanted to learn first hand) but did not at the time. I am now interested in doing 2 SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity. (see link below) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Can anyone confirm or deny that this is possible with this motherboard?
