This my board and I love it. Feature laden and just the right mix of legacy. Crossfire ready!

Would that be card or should that be cards? Card and you're cool to go......cards and you're not?

I would just like to SLI, so having two nvidia cards would be nice but my board only cross fires?

The marginal gains of SLI only with some games when balanced with lower energy draw, heat and better performance with a singular higher grade card, along with zero frustrations of the set up have me changing my tune from Crossfire or SLI to single card only. In fact I'm thinking my next build will be a ultra micro ATX build with just this goal of less being more.....stay tuned.
