Motherboard for Phenom x4

Hi, I'm looking for a new motherboard. I'm gonna buy an HD 5770 (or maybe 5830) and a Phenom x4 (945 or 955).
My budget is limited and I can only afford those two cards:
MSI DKA790GX Platinum
Asus m4a785td-v evo

Which one is better? I'm probably gonna do crossfire in future and overclock a bit (not much since I want to leave the stock fans).
There is any other mobo that is better than those two and has both crossfire and supports am3 for the same price?
Thanks

  1. Yeah an Asus 790 or 890 mobo is a much better option.
    Can you even buy that MSI mobo retail? it's old.
    The Asus you listed is a good mobo but will not crossfire well it's gimped.16x and 4x
  2. Thanks for your reply. Also I just found this mobo for more or less the same price and it does seem more future proof, am I right?

    Sata3 6gb/s, 2 USB3, Crossfire. What I'm wondering is if is it asrock a good manufacturer and if the bios is good.
    And also this one:

  3. Looks like a good mobo and has all the latest tech.

    Just called a friend who is a head tech at a well known computer store and he says they are good boards.
    I trust his opinion on things so by all means go ahead.
    Good value.
  4. Thanks!
