    Actually so do many of the older ones! My P5W-DH Deluxe is a crossfire board, and it is almost 2 years old.
    What you cant get is an Intel chipset that supports SLI, at least until the next gen comes out late this year or early next.

    It's not that bad. It's just the backing up that makes things tricky. I use the 500gb drive as my OS drive, but keep it tidy by keeping all file types together
