Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition
955... you make the 955 a 970 if you change the multiplier from 16 to 17.5... =p

it is a good mobo.... your choice on something cheaper....
Lastly, should I buy the card that I picked out? Are there any better options? Should I wait for the 69XX series? My reason behind picking this card was that I heard good things about it and I heard good things about the vapor-x feature. If I was going to buy this card i would more than likely upgrade to a crossfire of 2 5870's within 6 months.
really is your choice... the 6000 series scale nicely... so you'll probably get more from Crossfire...
