oh i forgot to List my Needs . i wont Crossfire my CarD so it doesnt matter if motherbard will reduce PCI lane or not , but i need single card to be Totaly 16X .

I usually dont tuch clock of my Hardwares it means i wont Overclock my CPU or GPU or other things .

I think i will like USB 3 , does it even works that great ? should i get additional thing for it or some special Flash ? mine is Exporter ( patriot ) will it work on USB 3 ? or usb 3 is useless ?

i dont have Sata 3 compatible HDD , so sata 3 is only for Future , i may get new HDD in future but for now i realy dont need it .

I Want that VGA card tranfer its whole speed & dont be Bottlenecked by Motherboard FSBs & other things . simply i want 100% speed of CPU & 100% speed of VGA . thats it .

I personally have Asus crosshair formula IV. It it just overkill if you don't go for crossfire and overclock. but what I can say is that USB3 will come handy. Some new and most upcoming external storages will support USB3. Even if external storage can not use all the speed that USB3 can offer, it is still good upgrade over USB2 speeds. I am personally thinking of getting Sansung story3 2TB as an external drive... http://www.storagereview.com/samsung_story_station_3_re...

Othervice any 890 based motherboard would be just fine!

You can disable any on-board graphics in the BIOS. and with only one video card, there will always be an x16 PCI-e slot available.

IMO Onboard VGA card gonna Consume alot EVEN when Disabled ,.

Not that you are wrong, but consume a lot of what when disabled? Any system memory it would use is released back to the system when the onboard is disabled, and you are not using it to drive any monitors. I'm just curious as to what the on-board graphics will consume when it is disabled?

Best suggestions right here. Since you're not Crossfiring, and just want something solid, the 870A-UD3 would be the best option, although the 880GA's integrated graphics are useful in case your video card stops working and you need to debug.
