AMD Thuban Motherboards

Hi, im currently waiting for the new AMD Hexa core processors to drop, in the mean time i need to pick up a new motherboard since i currently have a ep45-ds3r for my 8400. Currently looking for one with:
Dual gigabit lan
Crossfire capable
Integrated hdmi

Anyone have any ideas?

Also of note, i don't currently own any AM3 CPU's, so flashing a new bios would be a little hard without spending more money than i have to.

Edit: also I'll be overclocking the CPU and would like usb 3 and sata 6

saw this one on new egg but didnt have dual gigbit

  1. Gigabyte has a board they say is thuban ready.

    GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

    It looks to have everything you are looking for.

    The ASUS board you listed will work too if it says it supports 140 watt CPU's its referring to the Thuban x6
  2. Thanks for taking the time to help but it doesnt have dual gigabit which blows as i would have ordered it
  3. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    Why you want a mobo that support the X6 but with onboard video?, IMO if you want the best, the onboard video isn't a good option.
  4. i don't think there's any board now(890GX) that has dual lan... for that purpose i'd suggest you wait for the 890FX boards to be released(which is happening along with the release of thuban processors)
