Solved

Need assistance selecting a MOBO for new build.

Current setup ready for new build:

FX-6300
Rosewill Thor-V2 (has front panel USB 3.0)
Rosewill 630W PSU
16 GB G.Skill Ripjaws
Radeon HD 6850

I need a new motherboard, and it's a subject I'm not up-to-date on. I am looking for USB 3.0 support, and just something that will work with the parts I have listed. No budget per say, but anything under 140 would be preferable.

Thank you in advance.

  2. You need a motherboard with a 970 , 990X or 990 FX chipset for best compatibility and future upgrades

    The 970 can only run a single graphics card , the 990x can run two but they share the connection [ intel always does this ] , and the 990FX has the best features
    The Gigabyte UD3 is a good board and a very decent price

    from newegg, 120 dollars, will work perfectly with what you have, comes with 8gbs of ram free, which you can resell or keep for another build or add to what you have.
