More about what motherboard
  1. Budget please.

    Mention your full config that you have now.
  2. For a motherboard the budget would be around 100 max 120.

    My full config:
    500w psu
    current mobo no idea...got it from china
    g card : amd radeon hd 4670 (i am going to buy another for crossfire)
    c-media 5.1 digital audio card ..(if poss a mobo with built in 5.1)
    2x ddr2 corsair 2gb ram
    Phenom II X4 black edition
  3. awesome
  4. In any case, you're going to need NEW RAM {DDR3}. You don't want a MOBO with an onboard GPU if running a discrete GPU(s). If I had to pick (1) then probably the ASRock 870 EXTREME3 ; ASUS owns ASRock...
