:sol:  Hi guys i choosed Few motherboards that contain Onboard VGA card such as 4250 or 4290 , OK these vga cards are only good when your VGA card is unpluged for some reasons ( repairing or ... ) but They are not free , i think they

1.Consume from PSU even when we are suing from Primary VGA card for example ( 5870 )
2.They engage CPU ! ( Slow down CPu :o  )
3.Engage RAM too !
4.unnecessary when we gonna Install High VGA card

so Should i go for Motherboard which doesnt Have ANy onboard Card or Onboard card wont be a Big bother & i will Fully Enjoy of my VGA card & CPU & Vga both will work in Max Performance !

GA-890GPA-UD3H version 2 or ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 has onboard VGA card , But it has very Strong chip that is fully Compatible with New AMD six Cores !
& ATI card 6000 series ( high ends :bounce:  )

But i think i will use Half of my GPU & CPU if i get Mobo with onboard card !

& another none onboard option is ASRock 890FX DELUXE3 but i dont fully trust asrock mobos quality .

But away i dont Want to OC my Vga card ( for some reasons )
I Think single 5870 would be Enough since i am using 19xx X xxx Res .

tnx & bye :hello: 

Afterall help me ! :D

You will have better performance and reliability with a card bought outside of a motherboard purchase.
They have recently gone back to doing this and it really doesn't make any sense to me.
For an average user who does not game then I could see why you would want to build with this type of motherboard
but if you do any type of editing/gaming then I would go with a component video card and ditch the GPU/Mobo unit.

Yes that's what I'm suggesting.
Save the money you would spend on a gpu/mobo combo and buy a decent mobo with a nice graphics card.

Here's some Side-by-Side MOBOs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|13-131-636^13-131-636-TS,13-131-363^13-131-363-TS,13-157-208^13-157-208-TS,13-157-196^13-157-196-TS,13-130-297^13-130-297-TS

Unless you're purchasing an SSD that's >300 MB/s Read or Write then there's no advantage to SATA3 ports with ANY HDD. ASUS owns ASRock so put your worries away.

If your budget won't go bust then I'd look at the ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 or ASUS Crosshair IV Formula. The comparisons also included 1 SLI MOBO, I prefer nVidia, and were in-keeping with your assumed budget.

RIGHT, it's a bad idea to get a MOBO with onboard video if the intent is to to go Dedicated GPU(s). You loose bandwidth and physical RAM, and even {Disabling} in the BIOS you still have bandwidth loss and/or other oddball problems.

So thats what i was Wanted but i cant Find Cheap None Onboard Mobo with 890 CHipset ! all i can find is ud5 which is expensive for me , but the mobos that i listed Up there : GA-890GPA-UD3H version 2 is cheap & have 890 chip but have that Crap onboard GFX ,

I found asrock as a good Option , it has what i want but i Can trust asrock as a High Quality Brand , what do you think ?

But why i cant get ASUS or GIGA brand , good None onboard with 890 CHip mobo ?

I cant get these things in same time , as i found in Asrock !

USB 3 , sata 3 , none onboard , 890 CHip For Max Performance , anything lower than 890 cip will Limit me if i get Phenom 965 BE & ATI 6870 !

As I said "ASUS owns ASRock so put your worries away." I'd like to 'like' Gigabyte but they're very frequent visitors here with bad MOBOs, so I tend to recommend ASUS and sometimes ASRock {ASUS budget versions}.

Look at the ASRock 890FX DELUXE3, you mentioned it and I agree it's a good MOBO. Otherwise bite the bullet and 'think longterm' and go for either the ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 or ASUS Crosshair IV Formula. Frankly, the differences between the 890FX and 790FX are VERY small and ONLY become apparent with the 6-cores {AMD 10XX/11XX} -> http://www.techreaction.net/2010/04/27/asus-crosshair-i...
