I'm building a new rig soon, but I'm not completely sure which mobo I should get for the GTX 760's. Here's what I'm going with so far:

CPU: AMD FX-8350
GPU: EVGA GTX 760 2GB in SLI
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500GB
RAM: Not sure yet
PSU: XFX Pro Series 750W

I really like this board, but it doesn't have PCIe 3.0 and the GTX 760's are 3.0. I know they'll run on PCIe 2.0, but since I'll be buying a new motherboard anyway, would I benefit much from PCIe 3.0 or should I save my money and go with the motherboard posted above?

I would get the GTX 760's and run them now , the PCIE 3.0 won't make that much of a difference.

I'd like to stay at the $200 and under range, but I'm not too concerned with going up to $50 over if I can get something worth it.

I'm not sure if my current HX650 psu would handle both of them.

Ok guys, I hear that the AMD FX-8350 will benefit from a good 990FX motherboard. That's why I chose that one and well..it looks awesome too! I'm trying to build a well balance machine. Thanks for your help!!

Your setup is great and twin 760's are purely awesome.
