:scara: errrrrrrr no it will run pcie x16 slot 1 @ x16/2.0 slot 2 runs @ 8x/2.0. Remember that spec 2.0 effectively doubles the data rate per lane over spec 1.0.....so a card at x8/2.0 will transfer as much data as a x16 slot spec 1.0. Thw GX chipset has integrated graphics and I beleive a total of 28 free pcie 2.0 lanes. The FX chip however has 41 free lanes and can run 2 vga cards @ x16/2.0.. :rofl_mini:

Quick question, Which is better? Im about to purchase a MOBO here soon, and this ASUS caught the eye. I have an asus p4p800-D currently and have never had an issue with it. had my P4 OC'd from 2.4ghz to 2.80 for several years! BUT this one has caught some bad reviews, I dont plan on running more than two videos in a crossfire however.

ASUS M4A79 Deluxe

Or this GIGABYTE model which i've read very nice reviews on

GIG mobo

Thanks! :scara:

:scara: nah I do all my oc in bios manually. I have ran this cpu/mobo at 300 mhz htt/mem buss and the cpu at 3.9 but it gets a tad warm so it's at 3.77 ghz on stock vcc, mem @ 1620, 7-7-7-22-1t , NB @ 2430 mhz HT @ 2167mhz, HTT/ mem buss @ 243 mhz. Completely stable I just stuck a Sapphire 5770 in mine so our rigs are rather similar hehe :rofl_mini:
