Setting records all over the place.
Gigabyte boards and Asus boards have crappy sata port placement that drives me BATTY!
I second the Biostar, have a look here;
Personally with the 4870x2 having more possible power than the vast majority of the market can benefit from, you won't really need the x16/x16 xfire off 2 cards unless you wanna have bragging rights on cyper-penis length. Also it wont be long before a GTX280x2 is out offering even more power for single slot systems and by the time there is sufficient technology (software and hardware) available to actually utilise that amount of power the new series will have arrived. The p45 are reaching higher FSB and will yield more actual "real world" performance gain through higher CPU clocks than having x16/x16, imho.
