    Gigabyte Ga-ep45-ds3r

    For a dedicated machine to play, what do you think about the board GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3R?
    Does anyone have it?
    Do you think that is more appropriate to GIGABYTE GA-x48-DS4?

    It's a good motherboard.
    For a gaming system it is the graphic card, which you should think about.

    My colleague have the GIGABYTE EP45-DS3R board, is very fine and smooth. He have a punctured GTX260 216 and PC in the firm.
    And a little more in price is the GIGABYTE EP45-UD3R with UltraDurable3 (best cooled and a little more quality.)

    I thought a gainward hd 4870 1gb ddr5. What do you think? Besides, I thought ds4 stick, allowing crossfire and is something of higher quality. I do not intend to change it in many years, the dough is going to cost... lol

    The Gainward HD4870 1GB is good in performance / price, recommended.

    Crossfire is more advisable for the x48 chipset because the 2 PCI-E2.0 will 16x, the second limits the P45 Chipset PCI-E2.0 8x (less bandwidth).
    That is, the better for Crossfire GIGABYTE GA-x48-DS4.

    Thanks, that's what I did. Gainward and x48. One question, why do crossfire, is it necessary that the two cards be alike? Games have to be prepared or just with the drivers is enough?

    To put two CrossFire graphic mark each gives the same, it must be borne in mind that the graphics chip is of the same family.



    Once you have configured the system and its drivers are installed, the performance that can make it depends on many factors, so that the games take advantage of what you have to work with higher resolutions, the CF will benefit from optimized, I ran like others with a single graphic card. Even can be given if a particular game might be worse.
