    two crossfired 1900 X-TX's wipe the floor, they are better than 7800gtx's, get them instead. even 1 by itself is better than a gtx.

    So what would be the best mobo and mem using a X2 4400+ and X1900 XT-X then.

    not sure on your price range mate... but i'd look at that anyway

    Asus Crossfire mobo is the best currently available. I understand there is a second generation Crossfire chipset out soon but at this moment the Asus is the best. The Crossfire specced by nikebee lacks SATA2.
