More about what motherboard
  1. Perhaps look at the Gigabyte 870A-UD3 or the 890GPHA-UD3. Both will suit your needs fine, but the latter has support for 8x/8x CF later on.

    You can tell how many fans itll support by looking at the specs of the mobo and seeing how many 3 pins fan headers it has.
  2. First question... What is your budget?

    Second question... Do you plan to crossfire?

    With that said, the ASRock 870 Extreme3 covers those two topics at the best price to performance / features.
  3. by budget is $1600 NZD which is around 1250 USD

    I may decide to cross fire in the future but not initially
  4. I was looking at the

    GIGABYTE GA-890XA-UD3 AMD790X SB850 AM3 DDR3 PCI-E
  5. Check out the Asrock 870 extreme3 as suggested by Techmo.. It is cheaper, has the same crossfire configuration like your gigabyte choice, is based on a newer chipset..
  6. In New Zealand we dont see many asrock boards, mainly asus and gigabyte.

    If youre going to crossfire, get the GB 890GPHA-UD3 i mentioned before, you can get it for around 240. Or if youre not crossfiring go with the 870A-UD3 for 190 ish.
  7. ^+1... If the ASRock board isn't readily available in New Zealand, the boards list by p1n3apqlexpr3ss are good alternatives.
