New Motherboard Help, First Build

Hi I'm looking for a socket AM3+ motherboard for an AMD FX-6100. I will be getting a 560 Ti gpu.

Features I want:

Dual SLI
Overclocking capability
USB 3.0

If you can't recommend a specific board I would appreciate suggestions about brands /or which Northbridge etc. I could also use a recommendation on which manufacturers are more reliable.

Thanks!

  1. Asus and Gigabyte are your two top tier vendors for motherboards. Asrock and MSI are their lower tier counterparts.

  2. I was looking at the 990FX lines because as I understand it they're better for SLI/Crossfire (due to the dual x16 PCI capablities).

    Is the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard a solid choice?

  3. That's a fine board. Can't go wrong with it.
