    I plan to get the asus p5b deluxe mobo as many of you guys have suggested. I want to eventually go crossfire so i was wondering if it does. i swear i heard you guys said before that it does. now im not too sure as i dont see it on asus's website or on newegg mentioning crossfire support. I did just read an article saying asus released something that now makes it crossfire ready. I've included a pic. i have no idea to tell if it is crossfire ready or not

    edit: can someone also tell me if it fits 2 VCs with cooling systems on them. i am THINKING it will but would like to be sure

    crossfire is when you use 2 VCs instead of one. It's basically like SLI

    suppose to have better graphics and things like that

    Isn't Crossfire the equivalent to SLI (as in crossfire = ATi term and SLI = nVidia term)? Both things being the same idea.
