MSI 990FXA V2 or GIGABYTE UD5 or ASUS SABERTOOTH R2

Need opinions on which one to get MSI seems better option for me but cant say for sure cause the price tag its the same for all 3 motherboards 2-3 euros up and down and of course overclock its the number 1 factor.

  1. Gigabyte and Asus would be my suggestion, but the Asus OCing will be a little more user friendly.
    But either are of equal quality.
  2. none. think about what your gooing to get. all the am3+ boards are just old phemon2 boards thats been made to work with the am3+ an old board with nothing new to show for it. just one revision after another and a list of bios up dates per revision in the hopes to keep am3+ afloat i bought when it first came out and the talk was there was to be a new board with a new chipset[1090fx] with pci-e3 and what ever well that was droped and there still conning you into an old out dated board that leaves you in the past. its like if you got an old junkey 5 year old car and you put a new motor in it in the end you still got an old 5 year old junkey car. amd is into the fm chips not here anymore look over the a88x boards specs. and compair. then wait and see what the release of fm2+ will be. . am3+ is a dead end in my book.

  4. I know AMD has given APU more attention but FX get updates also like the Vishera CPUS and also im not into APUS i dont like em at all to be honest they are great CPUS but not for a High end machine even the flagship APU cant touch an FX 8350. now about the old board thing is something you have to deal with it,its true that am3+ is old and theres no news about 1090fx i believe sometime in 2014 we will get an official update about 1090
  5. Novuake thanks for your opinion i think i will go with GIGABYTE but the only thing that keeps me thinking about MSI its the Vishera World record OC that the GD80 have....
  6. giga asus msi all got claims for oc record. hype.. if your rig is running fine and doing what you want for now its best to wait. google am3+ is dead the guy above quoted ''i believe sometime in 2014 we will get an official update about 1090 '' dont hold your breath on tha. t google around on that too. i never though i would ever think of going intel but thats were i am at now.
  7. am3+ its newer than am3 so that says it all,it may be 2 years now but its still newer than am3...anyway
  8. Get the Sabertooth if you have the extra cash for it. It'll bring maximum overclocking and best crossfire support. It's overall the best board, that's why it's more expensive than the others. Asus BIOS are also very user friendly, and be sure to take the r2.0.
  9. thanks for you opinion its really better on OCing?also i plan to SLI no crossfire i dont like Radeon cards..about the price the sabertooth r2 its more Cheap than the other two!5 euro less to be more specific!!its more expensive in your country/region?
  10. Oh yea, it's 20-30 more here. Definitely go for that.
