Hello All,

I was wondering what the best performance CPU and Mobo combo is on the market today in the $300 range. Has to have Crossfire, I have an HD 7850 right now but want to be able to get another one in the future.

I am not really sure what if any other criteria would be helpful.

thanks in advance for the help.

Regards,

If your just after gaming, the an AsRock Z77 Extreme4 and a 3570k is what is typically recommended and will come to ~$300.
Will overclock and does support dual Crossfire/SLI, the CPU is strong enough to not bottleneck any card you could throw at it.

Exactly this, but if you already have a semi-decent cpu now, i suggest waiting until haswell is released.
