99.9% of people using FM2 would not need a second PCI-E 16X slot, if you want to go multi-crossfire then you should go with AM3+ or an Intel chipset. FM2 is for APUs with built-in graphics, and maybe if you want a boost.. an additional discrete graphics. These boards are for budget systems.
 
[citation][nom]flyflinger[/nom]"...price point of $100."mmmmm..... so why is newegg selling this thing at $119~???[/citation]

Maybe Newegg decided that they wanted to sell it for $120 instead of the $100 MSRP.
 
[citation][nom]greghome[/nom]really really bad SATA output layouts though[/citation]

Unless you're doing discrete x discrete Crossfire/SLI in the APU system (in which case you are probably fail), the second PCIe x16 slot probably won't have a large, dual-slot card and it's unlikely for many of us to use the PCI slots. Although not ideal, "really really bad" seems like an exaggeration, all things considered.
