  1. Ideally, browse for AM3 motherboards with an 890 chipset. At a minimum, any 800 series chipset would be fine (just confirm USB 3.0, SATA 6.0GB/s and at least 8x/8x PCIe for dual GPUs).

    A good option Gigabyte 890 chipset =>

    A good performance for price ASRock 870 Extreme 3 =>

    If I had to choose it would be the Asus Crosshair IV because of its 16x/16x PCIe slots for options running dual GPUs down the road. The Gigabyte has the same option (16x/16x), but I tend to lead toward ASUS. The third board (ASUS M4A89GTD) is a good board also, but "limited" to 8x/8x for dual graphics cards. The differences between 8x/8x and 16x/16x are minimal, but if you are buying a board today there is no reason not to go with 16x/16x.
  4. Thanks Sadams04 :hello: ... i'll be waiting for this Mobo (Asus Crosshair) and thanks again
