ASUS P5Q PRO vs GIGABYTE EP45-DS3

Continued from Free Intel Core2 Extreme quad-core processor QX9650

There are 2 motherboards in my mind to choose from… ASUS P5Q PRO and GIGABYTE EP45-DS3. I have few must have features in my selected motherboard. First thing is ATI CrossFireX support. I want the ability to add on another display card to improve 3D processing performance in the future. I don’t want to “throw away” the existing card and buy a new one. I seldom upgrade my hardware unless it is a must. I add on usually.
