I've been lookin at either the Rampage II extreme X58 or Gigabyte EX58 UD5, considering running crossfire 5870's.

BUT
I have two PCI cards, Fat1lty with front drive and my wireless N adaptor.

I could use onboard sound provided by either motherboard, but i'll need a wireless n adaptor.

Both motherboards look like the PCI slots would be swamped by the graphics card heat sinks.. so I don't think I can use crossfire and a pci card on either of those motherboards, unless I'm missing something?

What options do i have?

Thanks

See if you can squeeze in the sound card, ditch the wireless card for a USB version. Personally I woulnd't want to go back to onboard sound, not having had that card!

Thanks, though I only use Hardon Kardon 2.1 it would be nice to be able to use the SB card and also use my sennheisers in the front drive :)

So I need a motherboard to fit crossfire + pci.... and have good O/C capabilities for i7 920..... :) i don't ask for much
