Its time to upgrade my cpu and at the moment i am just debating the benefit of upgrading my Mobo. Currently im running an 890 chipset that supports dual pcie at x8. Will i see any benefit from my 2 5850's if i upgrade to a 990fx motherboard? Will my crossfired 5850 both run at x16?

It doesn't matter, dual 16x and dual 8x have a 1% difference in performance. You don't need to change your mobo!

Yeah i read there was very little difference i guess i just needed to hear it one more time. Ill put the money towards some ram thanks for the quick info. My tax return is already burning a hole in my pocket :pfff:
