Asrock BLOWS!!!

Had two boards DOA on me, the rest pretty much suck. I would personally avoid this company if your looking for a quality product.

unfortunately, the only options are sapphire RD480 or RD580. Or to go with the DFI 975x.

ALso keep in mind that 955 chipsets support crossfire, as do the 965 and 975. simply get an ATI chipset with 2 pci-e 16x lanes, or 955 and up with 2x pci-e lanes.

LoL. Crossfire support on nVidia chipsets will never happen officially. AMD must pay nVidia quite a bit ofr THAT particular liscence.
