There are 3 AMD cards that look like they will do what I want, but if
there is no support it is not worth it.
Any truth to this?
Does it depend on whether it's a high or low end board? I've only ever
paid around £20 for graphics cards. The nvidia one that I had was giving
me loads of problems with things like Open Office. Swapped it for an AMD
card some time back which has worked perfectly.

The reason is it has 3 PCIe 2.0 16 slots and handles DDR3 2133
It also can handle the CPU I want to get, AMD FX-9590.<br>
I am buying a few things each month so I can afford to pay more
for a better system.<br>
I am thinking of doing cross-fire on the video cards. Looking to
spend about $150 each<br>
