Gigabyte 890fx vs 890gx

since BD wont be arriving to am3 boards, any reason to pick a gigabyte 890fx over gigabyte 890gx?

as far as i know the differences are back panel connections and gx only allows dual cards to run at 8x vs fx's 16x.

need gigabyte because i need 7+ sata connections and the asus only has 6.

everywhere i go people tell me to stay away from the gigabyte 890gx due to tons of problems with it, same as the msi 890fx another board i really liked the looks of.

im looking to put in a 1055t 95w and overclocking it to 4ghz with a corsair h70.

im not interested in running crossfire.

is the build quality on the gigabyte 890fx really that much nicer then the gigabyte 890gx or msi 890fx?

  1. They all should have similar build quality. If you are not planning on crossfire then the GX is fine and you get the integrated graphics as well.
