    well i'm buying it from singapore.i'm short on money now..if money was no problem than mobo+processor combo will save me around 3000 tk.i'm planning on 5770 crossfirex since i already own 1(xfx xxx edition)..seems that bd has no crossfire compatible 1156 board.i am worried if that motherboard + 2 fat 5770 can fit in my space 703 casing.

    Asus P7P55D is a good Crossfire/SLi LGA1156 board. Check it out from Global.

    Default Re: can normal microatx casing handle atx board?

    can anyone tell me a gigabyte lga 1156 board that is available in bd which is sli/crossfirex compatible.besides asus p7p55d works at x16x4 mode which implies if second card is added both will run at x4 mode which is such a waste.however i changed my mind for the time being to buy a single mobo from singapur rather i'll be bringing a corsair hx 850 to be future proof.it will cost me 285 sgd(14250 tk).hope i'll get my hands on it in 3 days and then i can post some pics of it.

    Hmmm...you got it a bit wrong. P7P55D does not work at x16x4 mode. The first card will operate at x16 if installed alone. If a second is added they will work at x8 and x8 mode. This is the most major limitation of P55 chipset. They do not have 36 lanes like X58s. If you really want true dual x16 with P55, you have one choice at the moment: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD7 which will cost about Tk.25000 from Smart. The board had an nForce 200 chip built-in that provides about twelve extra lanes. Other than this, there is no other board in BD that will give you phenomenal graphics power with LGA1156. However, I like your decision a lot. Buy a single GPU motherboard from singapur (Mirpur, Monipur, Rongpur, Kachpur, Pirojpur and now Singapur!!!). The PSU will be superior to your whole system though. You will be a lot future proof. Just try to get a GTX460 sometime.
