Hello all, As the tittle suggest, any recomendation between these 2 mobos? Which is the best for xfire? My current dilemma is the following: Deluxe: Only 8 sata +2 esata, i need at least 10 sata ports Good IO in the back Premium: Has 9 sata + 2 esata Awful IO in the back I also need at least 1 pcie x1 free to use, so i f you see the mobo's layout you'll see that the deluxe has more pcie x1 slots., however the lack of sata ports might be a deal breaker, however.. I was able to either buy myself a pcie x1 extender card that might have 2 sata ports or use 2 esata to sata cables, connecting the cables from the external esata back to the main sata drive/hdd. Currently i can get the Deluxe for around $300 and the premium for $373. Is worth more the premium or should i stick to the deluxe? Finally, the gpu's i might be using are 2 sapphire 7970 oc+boost that might require more than 2 bay extension, making difficult to install any pcie x1 card. Muy gut goes to the deluxe because has more pcie x1 slots and perhaps i might be able to use 1 card for the dedicated audio and one for the sata III extension card. Thanks to all cheers!
