  1. Sabertooth 990Fx R2.0.
    5Ghz is still not guaranteed, as your chip should be capable as well.

    Corsair TX650V2 would be a good choice for your components.
  2. Thanks but i said cheap, The Sabertooth is quite expensive....
  3. Any one else ANY answer would be nice....

    Whats your budget?
    Some good cheaper options,
    Gigabyte 990FXA UD3
    Asus M5A99XEvo r2.0
    Asus M5A99FX Pro r2.0
    Asrock 990FX Extreme4
    Asrock 990FX Extreme9

    For 5ghz you'd need a board with at least a 8+2 power phase design.
    Sabertooth R2.0, 990FXA ud7 or CHV Formula are the best boards for max overclocking (5Ghz+)
  5. 50-100 dollars. It would be nice if it was a crossfire enabled board but i don't mind too much about that
  6. Check out the M5A97 r2.0.

    Nice UEFI Bios.
    Solid 4+1 power phase design, good for moderate overclocks.
    Its got 2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 (x16 & x4).
    At that price point, its a very good board.
  7. Or the gigabyte ga970a ud3 wich has a 8+2 power design.
