    That motherboard is cheap looks very well designed better, than my ECS by far.

    damn, i was hoping that this board would be perfect, anyway my Ecs ka1 mvp is a great board stable/overclocks good like 260fsb 1:1. But there's one problem the sata connector lay out is in front of the pci-e slots and when you use long cards like the x1800/x1900 these cards block 2 sata ports out of the 4 kinda bad lay out there but that's my only complaint.

    Which Xfire Board To Buy For Two X1900s ?

    If I make this plunge and buy the video cards, which motherboard would you buy?
    The CPU will be AMD Athlon X2 4400+.

    Is the spacing between the two video slots a cooling factor?

    Can ATI tool overclock both cards in a crossfire setup?


    Expensive hobby.

    :respect: Theres new game in town for "Crossfire", just read about ATI starting "crossfire" controller that is right in mainboard, so you don't need extra crossfire card. You still only get 1 "true" 16x slot, other is jamed with module stick that forces other to work. Also K9 series of mainboards is about to retail in 2 weeks from several mfgs & has 40 pci express lanes, so both sli slots are "true" 16x, its waste of money not to wait few weeks & skip crossfire entirely.See Photo: EPOX 9NF4 SLI 2 OPTIMUS
