    If you want to go crossfire & you can wait untill March then the A8R32-MVP (the new RD580 chipset with Xpress 3200 Crossfire) may be the way to go. That should see an official release about then.

    If you need to buy now then the DFI LanParty UT NF4 Ultra-D (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard (MB-014-DF) is a very good mobo.

    BTW you will not have any problems using an ATI card & Nforce based mobo, like the Asus you mentioned, the above DFI or any other.
