hello. i was thinking of getting a Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UDF mobo or a ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3? Or should i stick with
the GIGABYTE GA-EP35C-DS3R. i went for the GIGABYTE GA-EP35C-DS3R because of the core2 extreme 3.20GHz. but
i need help because this will cost me a lot CHINGY CHING lol. i just want some Help from people who Know what they are
talking about.

My current system is a 790fx chipset. model M3A32-MVP/deluxe/Wi-Fi-AP. with 4gb ddr2 ram. i have x2 hd 5970's so i dont
need to worry about gpu but im not getting the speed i need. the cpu is a bottleneck. But is currently not running as
i erased the HDD so i can use 7 ultimate 64-bit on my new system. if i get a good response you may be in the draw to
WIN my current pc.

Thanks

Just get a phenom II and stick it in there X4 or X6 they are supported http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2Plus/M3A32MVP_D....
(unless you are playing at an Ultra high resolution any CPU will bottlenech a dual HD5970 setup.)
Upgrade to a Sandy Bridge LGA1155 CPU like I5 2500K or I7 2600K and you have a hope of keeping up with your GPU's.

^ I agree. Sounds like you want a simple upgrade without much cash. Try a Phenom II 955BE and a quality cooler for a decent overclock. Stay away from an x6 for gaming.
