first off you are going to want x48 for two 16x pci-e 2.0 slots. Personally I dont know much about specific x48 boards as I tend to remain budget conscious neither of which categories x48 or crossfire fall into

ok let me go hit up newegg for prices, assuming you can order from there..
well there are only 2 boards i can see suggestion for under $200 for a X38 base boards for a highen CF setup.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136051
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136045

otherwise spend a bit more for one of these 2

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128336

though to choose the board i would ask is what res will you be gaming at when using CF? if its 1920 or higher then you want X38/X48 if its lower then that then P45 will be more then enough for a CF setup.

I had a similar thread a few days ago. The guys gave me allot of good choices and links as to which board to get. As you will see in my last post i ended up scoring a great deal with an ASUS P5E deluxe X48.

I personally (if i didnt get that p5e for $134 would have spent around $220-$250 to get the Rampage or p5e or maybe the gigabyte DS4 on ebay) from what everyone says they are all great boards and they all support crossfire (2) x16 x16

Check out this link to see what was being recomended.

Here is a link to a board on ebay that would be a good choice just a bit over $200

HOLY CRAP, ASUS RAMPAGE FORMULA>>> if i didnt just get my P5e deluxe I would jump all over this. Hurry, less than an hor left to bid
