  1. I'd like to keep the total cost of my pc under $900 Canadian, seeing as I also need an OS, a keyboard, a mouse, and a monitor. With the 570 now out I'm trying to save as much money as possible on other components, so I unfortunately can't afford a $250 motherboard. I might upgrade my CPU and MBO next summer once Sandy Bridges and Bulldozer are out, but only I haven't got much of a choice if I want to run the latest games. Sorry about not giving you a price range earlier, but I wanted to get an idea of what the top of the line MBO would be. Any more help is appreciated.
  2. the first link i posted is pretty much the most expensive u need to get

    the other one is a more reasonable priced board.
    NewEgg is great at filtering out which boards will work for your machine

    this is another good one that was compared in a Tom's Hardware article
