Can someone recommend me an AM3 motherboard? I like asus and gigabyte, and really wondering if going for the 8xx chipsets are worth it over the 7xx's.

I'm looking at this one..

that's the upper end of my budget. I have the 790GX board by gigabyte and love it.

Well if you already have a 790GX board and its working fine,then why do you want to change it ?

^agreed

Unless you are planning to build a new system or your mobo is fried there is no reason to change the mobo.

I'll spend up to 140, but would rather spend around 100. I like integrated graphics and CF.

The ASUS M4A89GTD PRO which zipzoomflyhigh recommended seems a good choice
