I have recently made the choice to go with the Asus Formula V Crosshair. Read my thread on using FX series CPU's on this board.
The FX Series CPU's do fantastically for gaming as does the Intel I5 2600 which everyone raves about. I tossed up for some time in regards to the CPU's (Intel or AMD) and stick by my choice of CPU, which granted under some tests the Intel beats the FX Series Chips this is only an issue if your pushing your CPU's to the Absolute max and it will take a computer professional to push them that far.
I am running multiple clients of games and running them all on Max settings with no issues at all on the Hardware end. FX series CPU's are still a good budget choice for AMD fans, but read my thread before buying them so you do know what your in for.http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum2.php?config=tomshardwareus.inc&cat=30&post=301327&page=1&p=4&sondage=0&owntopic=1&trash=0&trash_post=0&print=0&numreponse=0"e_only=0&new=0&nojs=0
