Recently, I decided to upgrade my PC. After having a look at CPU options, I decided that I will need a new case and a new motherboard (now, both are OEM Acer ones). Right now I have a mATX motherboard, so I decided to get a ATX as I have room and they cost roughly the same. After looking for a case, I found the CoolerMaster CM Force 500, which seems great for my purposes.

I would like to have the motherboard to be compatible with AMD FX processors.

Now, after looking at motherboards.... I found 3. All 3 of them aren't really that far apart from each other. I would like to know which one you guys would recommend, and if not any of those, than what? I will not be doing any overclocking by the way. Thanks in advance! Below are the motherboards.

MSI 760GA-P43 (FX):

MSI 970A-G43:

Gigabyte 970A-DS3P:

The Gigabyte is the best out of the 3.

What's your reasoning? The MSI 760GA-P43 (FX) has higher transfer bus rates and supports 2133MHz RAM without overclocking. Why do you say it's better?

Awesome, thanks again ;)  But after doing some research I found that getting a Intel would probably give me better performance for the money, as most applications don't even use the 6+ cores of some of the higher end FX processors. Thanks again.
