    What cards do you have in your case, and will you be using 2 graphics cards now or in near future ?

    DFI has 3 slots pci, but thats about it for the chipset you want.
    Are your graphics card coolers single slot ?
    My mate just got a pair of 1900XT, (one Master Card) and an Asus A8R32-MVP Deluxe Crossfire mobo. It's crowded in his case (Akasa Eclipse 62), with a Fatality X-Fi and a Phys-X card. His problems are his psu is giving the cards enough juice when gaming so they crash.

    2 X850'S with zalman coolers on them so they both take up a pci-e and the slot adajacent, the asus board looks the ticket but the 3rd pci is preferred, i want the phyxs card also but i dont think thats gonna happen

    Don't waste your money. Give me that £200, and pretend you have a physics card. Performance will be faster. And I'll be £200 up.
