Haha, that's almost the exact same setup as I have. :tongue:

What resolution do you use? I'm running a 22" @ 1680x1050 and can handle just about everything maxed out with 30+ FPS, with the occasional dips into the 20's. Sometimes I turn off the most demanding setting for more fluent gameplay. (Such as dynamic shadows in Borderlands)

From what i read that mobo isn't good for Xfire, so if u plan on that then change the mobo. The GFX card is okay but i'd go w/ a dif brand. XFX is a good brand... sapphire isn't so good. I'm about to get me a new PC

What the balls? This board is immaculate in every possible area. It's definitely one of the better boards for Crossfire if nothing else. Even has a fantastic split (2x16 & 2x8) if you decide to go quadfire.

Idk i read on a review that it nly has 1 full speed PCIe slot. Also idk what one x16 or dual x8 link means. Does that mean it only has 1 x16? if thats the case how would you crossfire?

The xX is the number of lanes, the more lanes the larger the bandwidth. A PCI-E slot is just that, the name of the slot. When you use 1 card, you are getting x16, when you are using 2 cards, you are still using 16x for both cards. When you add another however, that one will be x8, as for the 4th.

(Current cards don't even saturate x8)
