i know the forum have motherboard section, but it look like not everyone look at it, im sure posting this in folding forum will help get good answer

that's what i need

2pci-e min, but more is bether
cheapest possible

i look at ncix and find this

Both are very similar, the Asus is DDR2, the ASRock is DDR3. Don;t worry about the chipset, since most of the work will be done by the GPUs; there will be hardly any load on the board.

If you can find a MSI K9A2-Platinum... if you can convince Apollo4g to part... no. The Asus should be a good board.
