Mobo selection Process

i was considering on getting this CPU/MOBO combo, and i was wondering about your thoughts on this motherboard, is it worth getting it? I was planning to get a radeon HD 5770 and G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600. Do you believe this might be a good value purchase? Or should i think about it twice?

What other motherboard would you recommend if im planning to get an AMD II X3 440 and 1 XFX radeon HD 5770, my budged for the motherboard would be around 150$.
Thanks

  1. What's your usage ? 5770/4GB RAM is a good combo overall,but i think you are considering it for gaming?
    As for motherboard

  3. That board is good, only the chipsets are a bit older. Here's another good board:

  4. Thank you for your answer. I'll look into it, so far that ASUS has taken my attention :O
  5. That asus looks great, any other ideas for a good mobo? Upgradeability/price /quality are my priorities :)
  6. The Asus is good if you plan to crossfire, if not you can get a cheaper mobo just as good as that one only without crossfire. I have a crossfire mobo and I don't use it. Should have bought a cheaper mobo and a better video card.
  7. Which cheaper mobo could be good to compete vs that ASUS? I might not crossfire in the long run, but i would like to get an optical motherboard that I can update in the future.

    You mean the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 that i posted ? if so,then
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131402
    would be good too

    Thank you maziar. The first ASUS that you posted is just making me drool. How about a nice mobo with no XFIRE and still good value/performance overall? Gigabyte/ASUS also would be nice :)

  10. Excellent, any other option with onboard video? Just in case. Afterwards its all about pondering which one to get. Thanks in advanced
  11. Great! Which one would you buy for yourself?
  12. Well it depends,if i need 2 PCI-E slots then i will go with either of the 2 first motherboards.Otherwise i would go with ASUS M4A87TD/USB3,because i don't think you'll need the integrated HD 4250M if you use a discrete card
