New board to buy for amd processor

which will be the best board form these (or any other under $100)

list
1. Asrock N68c-s Ucc Motherboard

2. MSI 870A-G54

3. AsusM4A89GTD PRO/USB3

4. MSI 880GM-E43
http://eu.msi.com/product/mb/880GM-E43.html

i do multitasking,video (screen recording, converting),heavy gaming,compressors,overclocking etc

i have hd6770 so their will be no need to have a good inboard graphics

:bounce: important->chipset should be the best one in 100$

the board should support best processor of amd phenom 2 series :love:

also board should be able to handle extra power consumption of overclocked cpu

**EDITED**
total budget (cpu+mb)=200$
can i use my current sata 2 hdd,sega 2 500w psu on these mb,
i prefer single display, so i will not be using multi display
their is no plan to use sli/crossfire (2*pciex16 slot will be enough)
i can use one ssd and 1 hdd, but do not want to use multiple hdd or ssd

    Of those, the ASRock board would be the best.

    However, at $110 and free shipping this AM3+ board would be better.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128519

    SATA 6GB/s, USB 3, and compatibility with future AMD CPUs.

    None of them.

    You want a AM3+ motherboard, not AM3.

    You'll never be able to upgrade the cpu if you buy one of those boards.

    The newegg sort function fails me again. How is it when I look at 970 boards I get different results? :heink:

    edit: It's because I sorted for 5200MT/s first. It's not specified for that board so it doesn't display.
  3. i do not want to use amd buldozer as phenom 2 can beat them easily.
    So is their any other option
  4. You don't have to use Bulldozer with those boards, they work with Phenom IIs.

    You don't want a Bulldozer, but you might want the next CPU... no reason to limit your choices in the future.
  5. next cpu?
    Are you talking about piledriver
  6. ... or later version of Bulldozer. The point being that you have future upgrade options.
  7. piledriver have 10% perfomance boost only, and newer one may have 20% more power but that cost too much, also intel's 22nm prossesors are getting close.
    So am3+ may have no use
  8. Maybe not, but the price is right and the features are there, so why not?
  9. the GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 does not seems to have ucc feature
    my total budget for cpu+motherboard is only 200$(or less if possible)
    also when it comes to core to core (1 core of ph2 vs 1 core of fx) performance phenom 2 series have more powerful cores
    some compressors like uharc use only one core and their are other applications too that use only one core
    also except chitset and socket other features are same

    i have added more info on main thread
  10. Sorry, I thought I made it clear that geekapproved had posted better options.

    The ASRock board is a great choice for you

    First of Phenom II is not faster than BD. BD is misunderstood. Windows 7 doesn't even recognize it's architecture, therefore doesn't know how to place the threads in order, and it places them randomly, which is why Win7 benchmarks are so bad. Windows 8 will bring 20% more performance.

    Either way, whether you want to go BD or not, there will be newer BD's, there is also Piledriver and god knows what else. So if you don't ever want to upgrade the cpu, fine, then go with whatever you want and buy one of those old overpriced 8XX series chipsets.

    I gave you the BEST suggestions in the $100 range for WHATEVER cpu you decide on. Take it or leave it.

    if this is the real case behind bd's low performance, then i will go for am3+.
    Can any one of them support my sata2 hdd, psu .nd dvd writer.
    Also does they support ssd
  14. Yes to all.
  15. now remains the cpu
    can these mb support my current processor athlon 64 x2 7750
    also can i unlock more cores on x6 processor using ucc
  16. No, you need at least an Athlon II for those boards.

    +1
  18. can i unlock cores on x6 processor using ucc
    i.e, x6->x8 or x10
  19. You can't unlock cores that aren't there. 6-core phenom IIs have 6 cores. 6 core Bulldozer CPUs have 6 cores, not 8 with two locked.
  20. so x3 or x4 will be enough
    x3 can be unlocked to x4 but can i unlock it to x3->x6
  21. No, x3 processors are always 4 core with one disabled. It may be disabled because it is defective, or it may just be disabled to sall it as an x3. you don't know until you try.
  22. ok :wahoo:
