I'm looking for a good motherboard that's crossfire ready for a computer I'm building. I don't have much experience with crossfire or SLI , so does anyone have any suggestions. I'm making an AMD computer with a phenom X4, so I need a motherboard with an AMD2+ slot.

Thank you

In order to use Crossfire or SLI you need two graphics cards capable of running it and a capable power supply. For motherboard choices, you're limited based on budget and what you need in a system. Remember, prior to purchasing, check to make sure you have the correct RAM and ensure your CPU is supported.

GIGABYTE GA-MA790GP-UD4H AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - A good choice unless you use RAID, which most home users don't need. $129

GIGABYTE GA-MA780G-UD3H AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - A good board with a slightly older chipset at a good price. $89

ASRock AOD790GX/128M AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX ATX AMD Motherboard - This motherboard uses the same chipset as the first Gigabyte on this list, only at a lower price. ASRock boards are good, but their manuals aren't very user friendly. $99
