ASUS Crosshair IV Formula is the best of the AM3 motherboards, so if that is in your price range, you can't go wrong with it (specially if going dual cards down the road).

I'm not sure where you are getting AM3 and AM3+ATI reference from. Are you referring to AM3 boards that support SLI versus AM3 boards that support Crossfire. Remember, AMD owns ATI so they are the same :D  .

The best price board for performance & features is the ASRock 870 Extreme3, which is a board I recommend a lot for that reason.

An AM3+ suggests a Bulldozer; so I/we assume AM3 socket & ATI GPU with 890FX chipset. The 965 BE is already 'unlocked' in every respect; the 'core unlocker' MOBOs is for the oddball 3-core CPUs.

However, a 'better' marriage of the 890FX is the 6-core AMD Phenom II X6; 1090T http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Side-by-Side - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|13-131-667^13-131-667-TS,13-131-644^13-131-644-TS,13-130-274^13-130-274-TS,13-131-655^13-131-655-TS,13-157-196^13-157-196-TS

ASRock is {ASUS} and I agree with tecmo34.

1. ASRock makes MOBOs and not CPUs, and they're 'budget' versions of big brother ASUS. ASUS ans ASRock are very good MOBOs. I build-off ASUS and EVGA MOBOS, but EVGA quit making AMD MOBOs.

2. AM3+ATI is 'new' to me; AMD is ATI - AMD purchased ATI - same company.

3. Yes, the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula employs the AMD 890FX Norhtbridge and AMD SB850 Southbridge. In-fact, ALL of the MOBOs listed in the Side-by-Side have both chipsets.

4. Yes, the AMD 890FX Norhtbridge is 'currently' the latest chipset; opinion currently it is the best and fastest choice. So yes it 'currently' is the best choice for both an ATI GPU and the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula as well all of the MOBOs in the Side-by-Side.

5. The 'Best' is the AMD MOBO is the ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme.

GPU performance is a combination of GPU, CPU, RAM and Architecture {e.g. 890FX chipset}.
