I know few of you has read my recent post in "MY RIG". Well, I am still not sure about have dual video card in Crossfire (I am go with AMD/ATI Radeon video card). I might stick with one video card. I know this motherboard are flexible to have one or dual or triple video card. I want to know if anyone have run single video card on any brand of MB based on Intel X5 But I will consider about get 2 set of video card turn in crossfire mode. One thing is I will remove my WIFI card out of my exiting PC into new PC. It has 2 PCI slot on ASUS. If I run on crossfire mode and there will have no room for my WIFI card. (My WIFI card is PCI card add on. Any idea will help me. Maybe stick with one video card so there will be room for my WIFI card..
Thanks for your help
I currently run and single car on my Evga x58 3SLI mobo. When I first build my computer I had 2 275GTX's in SLI they took a ton of power, hence the 1000w PSU I have. But I am currently running a single 5870. While it was nice to have the SLI 275gtx's for less then the price as a single 295gtx and about the same performance. I don't miss the extra power consumption and therefore extra heat it produced.
I would say just stick with one and upgrade as needed, when newer and better cards come out.
