Hello,
i am going for the p2 x4 965 be. which mobo would be good considering crossfire/sli, esata, ddr 1600 support, pci expansion, usb 3, onboard graphics would be a plus not mandatory though. I am hanging between asus and gigabyte. Please advise.

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

1- What is ur budget for the mobo?
2- The best AMD mobos comes with AMD chipset that only support Crossfire, so, if u want an AMD chipset ur only option is Crossfire. If u want SLI is better go with Intel.
3- Do u already have the RAM?

Thanks for replying mate.

I can shell out upto Rs. 10000 .... say around $ 200.
Im okay with Crossfire.
No I dont have the RAM. But Im planning on 2GB Corsair XMS3 DDR-1333
OR
Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333.

Your thoughts please..
