Thanks for the reply..
All of a sudden , I have taken a different course. I am going for the Phenom ii 940 be with surely an ASUS mobo...
It's a lot cheaper route with almost the same performance !
Question now is which model will it be for under 200 $ !
If possible for a future upgrade path you should invest in an AM3 motherboard and cpu.
The 770 chipset has a single x16 PCIe Gen2 slot and no integrated graphics. The 780g/785g chipsets have a single x16 PCIe Gen2 slot and integrated graphics (most with eSATA and firewire). The 790gx chipset has 2 x x16 PCIe Gen2 slots (which will run x8x8 in CrossFire) and integrated graphics - most with firewire. Gigabyte has a 790x version with no integrated graphics that's FTW.
And finally the 790fx chipset generally has 4 x PCIe Gen2 slots (which will run x16x16 or x8x8x8x8 in CrossFire setups) and no integrated graphics. Most have firewire and eSATA (I believe a Foxconn model has 2 x eSATA ports). Gigabyte has a model with an extra controller chip onboard for 10 x SATA and 12 x USB.
Popular combinations would be with the Phenom 550BE, 720BE, 810, 945 or the 955 listed above.
