Was thinking of buying this to replace a ASROCK board I returned because it did not support sli. I will be using it with a Amd 1090t.
If anyone knows about this board feel free to give some feed back on this board.

^+1 That the best AM3 + SLI MOBO. Otherwise choice 'B' MSI NF980-G65 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I generally prefer ASUS. I do NOT like MOBOs with onboard GPU if adding (a) Dedicated GPU(s). MSI would be 'A' if it were not for the "NVIDIA GeForce 8 series" onboard - big boo-boo.

This board does not have on board video which is what I want. I have had alot good results with Asus in the past.

My +1 was just that, I firmly agree with your selection ASUS M4N98TD EVO. Here's another post saying the same -> http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/284899-30-upgrade-sys... I would have chosen the MSI ONLY because it offers 3-WAY SLI had it NOT been for the use of an onboard GPU; the ASUS is only 2-WAY.

Sorry there's any confusion.

Read the MSI Specs:
Onboard Video
Onboard Video Chipset = NVIDIA GeForce 8 series
Video Ports = D-Sub + DVI

ASUS:
Onboard Video
Onboard Video Chipset = None

I see this board only supports up to a 1090t amd , with the 1100 out I figure they will have a bios update. My only let down about this board is no 3.0 usb and 6gb sata which is no real biggy since there are not alot products out yet for that.

I just want a roclk solid gaming pc for under $160.00 trouble free.

I really don't need a 3 way heck this system I am using now has a XFX force 285gtx single card and it gets over 100+ fps on full setting in most games but I am giving this to a family member because theirs is going out.

I was suppose to have this new pc built before christmas how ever I ran into some problems.

Age ditto - I build as a paid hobby. I would assume ASUS will be adding the CPUID info for the 11xx CPUs; your 1090T is supported.

We, mainly my daughter, plays Crysis and there's no 100 FPS even with the OC 3-WAY GTX 470 and the resolution used. Depends on the game.

If you're not going SLI 'EVER' then there are better SINGLE nVidia MOBOs; ANY CF Crossfire MOBO will run 1 nVidia GPU. Just stay away from ANY MOBO that has an onboard GPU when using a dedicated GPU.

Examples:

ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Well I plan going sli because I wont have my 285 gtx and for the price I paid when it was new its pretty top of the line. I am waiting for the 560's to come out I might pair off.

this card I have is on a water cooling block and cranked up which is why I get high frame rates.

Huh?! Okay, so are my 470's on Koolance blocks, still SOL on Crysis and 100+FPS.

Then the ASUS M4N98TD EVO is your best bet as of today.
