I am looking for a motherboard that will eventually support an additional 7850. Right now that setup is at exactly $800 and I would like to go as cheap as possible on the motherboard while maintaining a reputable board thats a good match.

Also, I know a SSD does not enhance gaming graphics, but would it help with game load times and transitions?

+1 to nbelote. I picked up that exact one for my 2500k. Seems like a great board so far!
