ASUS Crosshair V Formula (Socket AM3+) is what hell of a sweet Bulldozer based motherboard. I picked it up a few days ago and now I am just waiting for the AMD FX CPU's to get released.

The Bios on this thing is amazing from what I've been reading about. Can't wait to play around with it. ROG mobo's are truly amazing... :)

Hands down, one of the best Socket AM3+ motherboards in the world IMO....

My plan is to snag one of these as well when it comes to replacing my current PC.

Unfortunately I'm going to be forced to upgrade core parts, an then recycle other parts until I can budget the additional upgrades.

I know this board supports either SLI or Crossfire. Anyone know if the SLI takes a performance hit to a comparable crossfire setup?

Absolutely NOT. Both SLI and CrossfireX on AMD's new platform runs at 100%. We finally have the best of both worlds.

So the million dollar question: Which do you choose?

Best Bang for Buck, which IMO would be ATI Radeon cards.

Got a few Questions to help me make a decision.

If I were to get a new AMD chip in the Crosshair V, what do people think is the min graphics combo I need to go with to play BC3 at 1900x1200 (monitor native) comfortably?

ex: Not having to turn off all shadows an details, AA, etc...
(I don't need it max, but I also don't want it to look like Minecraft.)

I currently have a eVGA GTS250 SLI setup.
I was thinking I would wait to purchase new GPUs till I can spend a good amount on them.
(ex: pair of 6970's or single 6990 [which is better anyway?])

I could pull the GTS250 SLI out of my current tower an make those scream till I can afford high end cards. OR I can spend $300-400 now on a pair of like 67/6800 series cards.
A SLI alternative is not off the table either. I've used nVidia in all my main builds so far, but have been tempted to try out crossfire.

Words of wisdom?
