Hi all , I am buy a new mb for my AMD FX-8350 here is where I stoped :

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/SABERTOOTH_990FX/
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3894#ov

Which one is the better choice because I am think of buy the R9 290X GPU when it comes out . I will transfer my 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 rams in the new MB along with my HDDs . And will cool the FX-8350 with my Corsair H100 . So which is the best choice for me from the above MB ty ?

  1. I always favour Asus stuff for high end builds.
  2. They will all run it fine but I favor Asus boards and the Sabertooth is an excellent overclocking board. On the other hand I would personally go with this Asus board if I was buying M5A99FX PRO R2.0 http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A99FX_PRO_R20/
  3. wait, since you are buying a new board anyways, you may as well get a i5 4670k and a z87x-d3h motherboard

    I currently own an FX-8350 and have it running in a Sabertooth 990FX rev 2. I love it! It screams! I am also running 16GB, but I have replaced my C: drive with an SSD as well.

    I had a little trouble with the mb when I first configured everything, I was randomly loosing access to some of y hard drives. It turned out to be a fault with one of my hard drives, it was "going out" and when replaced everything ran smoothly

    If you get he Sabertooth, don't forget to update your BIOS and all of your drivers to the latest.

    Yeah i would if only i had the money :D
  6. given you are buying a fx 8350 and a new board, you are paying roughly the same money
