I want to buy a decent price but good (best bang for the buck) mother board in the preferably 100-125$ area. I want this motherboard to be able to operate the new Amd bulldozer that i will upgrade my cpu to when it comes out. Want to be able to cross fire

  1. I recommend you get a low end board until bulldozer is released. Newegg has a biostar A780L3L am3 board for only $34.99 after rebate with free shipping. This board will tide you over until the bulldozer cpus are released, probably in April. It makes no sense to buy an expensive board right now if you want to change cpus soon. This low end board will be easier to sell when the time comes to upgrade; bulldozer may not work with some current boards. The longer you wait to order the board, the more likely it will support the new amd cpus.
