HI i wanted to know what is a good motherborad upgrade from M2N32-SLI Deluxe im keeping everything i have but i want to just upgrade the MOBO.

I want a Amd Socket AM3 Mobo that supports both Crossfire and sli and also has built in wifi like my current MOBO (M2N32-SLI Deluxe)

So really if anyone knows of a MOBO that has the same features like the M2N32-SLI Deluxe But with CF and SLI support and Built in wifi and a AMD AM3 support, please let me know ASAP

The problem with you current MOBO is the DDR2 RAM. So IF you're going to upgrade you might as well start from scratch. The new AM3+ MOBO's with the 990FX chipset is where I'd be looking, but the gains will be small based upon a 'new MOBO' alone.

Here's a good cross section - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|13-157-267^13-157-267-TS%2C13-128-514^13-128-514-TS%2C13-131-735^13-131-735-TS%2C13-157-281^13-157-281-TS

For example the ASRock 990FX Extreme3 (AM3+ AMD 990FX) - http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=990FX%20Extreme3
AM3 Phenom II X4 HDX925WFK4DGM 95W Deneb 2800MHz 2000MHz 512KB x4 6MB C3 All
AM3 Phenom II X4 HDX925WFK4DGI 95W Deneb 2800MHz 2000MHz 512KB x4 6MB C2 All

Offers Phenom II X4 925 support and the new 'Bulldozer' AMD FX CPU's as well. However, you'd need new RAM; e.g. $50 Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm OK with upgrading the RAM...

I like one of The MoBOs that you recommended, I like the (GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3)

And let me make a correction the CPU is a (phenom II x4 945 3.0gz)....sorry about that.

now also do you know of any MOBO that have the Wifi built in? if not then i can get a Pci card for it. But i prefer it built in...

And thanks A whole lot for your Help!!!

Your CPU is supported by ALL versions of the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3, but no built-in Wi-Fi. Regarding W-Fi, it's not a good idea for Desktops to use Wi-Fi: 1. Slow and Unpredictable speeds, 2. High Lags; instead I recommend CAT-5/6 or PowerLine networking (see below / the newer models are 500Mbps). PowerLine -> http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategor...

Thanks a lot for your help.
I am going to buy the GA-990FXA-UD3 mobo. And as for the networking I'm going to get a wireless card because I hook my pc up to my 60" HDTV in the family room and that's why I would need a wireless Nic because there is no wired connection in the familyroom, But I did like that power line adapter so I may consider that.



Thank you so much!!! You was a huge help thanks!
