One of the most interesting things about DFI's ICFX3200-T2R/G, based on the RD600 chipset is that it has 3 PCIe x16 slots. The first 2 run at x8 speeds when used in Crossfire mode, as you might expect, and
the third slot operates at x2 speed making it handy for a Physics processor. [H]ard|OCP was also intrigued by the system's BIOS which allows far more control than most and you can save four different BIOS configurations which can be bound to hot keys. Head on over to find out the rest

With 450MHz FSB within reach, this motherboard offers a lot for a small price. Even without a second PCI-E 16x slot, there are a lot of extras on this board, so give it a look.
