That card looks very nice. I like that the motherboard has an integrated GFX card with it's own ddr3 memory and that you can plug in two more cards giving the performance of three cards.

I took a look at those motherboards as well, and was wondering, for the last one,does the integrated graphics card count as the second card? So would you only be able to have the integrated + 1 other card, or integrated + 2 others?

To me it doesn't sound like a good idea to just upgrade the motherboard, you will get very little gain. You would be better off upgrading the motherboard, cpu and video card together after saving up for a bit longer.

Intergrated + 2 others is my understanding.

Ragnor, crossfire gfx would be a big performance boost.
