All of the above bards will likely be within 1% of each other in gaming performance....

CHoose based on features, ease of use, numbers of slots, features you think you might use, or, price.....

The 2 Asrock ones are the same except the 880G has onboard graphics which you don't need

yeah 3 pci slots. but the third will run on x4 which will bottleneck your card big time. just stay with the 870. you wouldnt need the graphics2 and x8/x8 is enough for xfire.
