I am not an enthusiastic gamer, however I do game from time to time. I do not plan on running more then one or two video cards (possible upgrade in the future) My main focus is RAM and CPU. I am in music production and recording and does demand high processing power. Programs such as Cubase5 and Protools, along with extensive VST's (Toontrack's Superior Drummer , GuitarRig5, etc).

I am planning on getting an the 8120FX. And 1 stick of 8gb DDR3 RAM for now.

I am just having trouble selecting the best board for my needs. I do not need an 990FX board because it has a lot of features that I would not use or require.

990X would be more suiting? Please help.

They have been pushing into the enthusiast market with good prices and features, about the most recommended brand on this forum. They certainly are a established company.
