AMD Motherboard choice?

OK, I have two ASRock motherboards in mind... for an AMD gaming build. They are the 890FX Deluxe4, and the 890GX Extreme4. The rest of my build is below. Which one is better for gaming and the parts I have selected? Thanks in advance!

  1. Since you're planning on using a high end GPU, the 890FX would be a better option. Moreover, it will give you the maximum performance of a crossfire setup, should you consider an upgrade.

    Hope this helps!
