MOBO's I have : Asus Maximus Formula II, Asus Striker II Formula, P5N-D, P5K-V

One mobo has to go or get something else in it lol!

Thanks for input its greatly appreciated!

Maximus Formula II - e8400 - Why: P45 Chipset = OC-able with the e8400 and the e8400 won't bottleneck a Xfire setup (especially if OC'd)
Striker II Formula - QX6850 - Why: 780i Chipset could mean tri-sli or 3 gpu folding, either way it's better paired with a quad-core. also OC-able with the QX6850 but not as much.
P5N-D - Q6600 - Why: older chipset with an older CPU, makes sense to me.... hehe....
P5k-V Sell? OR add e4xxx/e5xxx and use as a spare? dunno...
