Hi, I'm planning to build a pc but I'm not sure which motherboard to buy! I am going to buy Amd Phenom II 955be c3, ATI 5770, 4gb ddr3 ram (1333).
I considered the Asus M4A785TD-V evo but I'm not sure if I might do crossfire at some point later on and that board only does x16 and x4.

Can you please advise me on any other suitable motherboards for around that price range (£70approx) which are reliable and good value for money etc.

Thanks in advance :D  !!

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

This ASUS M4A79XTD EVO is a very good option, a little more expensive that ur budget but can handle the Crossfire at x8.

Thanks for the reply, I looked at that board and its only £10 more expensive but seems to have quite a few more features so I guess I'll give it a go. Apparently they have problems with C3 processors though but I was wondering if the bios they ship with now is free of these problems??

Well, that is a little difficult to know that because many people buy that mobo. I think that comes with the new BIOS version.
