and again fail on the tpu members for not looking at the specs
990FX Asus Crosshair V Formula, which is ment for Bulldozer,
im guessing everyone forgot how to add 1 + 1 to get to 2, Athlon II 240 is cheap as dirt, pops in and works on 990fx of course, and oh yea its cheap as dirt, why buy a $140 - $200 phenom chip to pair with a board when the plan is bulldozer,
i love how so few lack common sense in which to see what direction the OP is headed.
so for those that dont get it yes im being a douchebag
and im doing it in good fun
cpu dosent matter since already been established it will be a bulldozer rig, i mean come on who buys $300 + motherboard and puts a $40 cpu in it unless there waiting on the badass chip to arrive really ppl come on
as for 6970 x2 or 6990 i still vote 6970 crossfire as far as i know just move the cards down a few slots
aka leave the top PCIe open and move the other gpu down further to slots 2 and 3 for xfire, then you can use your sound card, see wasnt that hard just took some brain power
heres a small diagram to show what i am talking about cause everyone loves pictures.
