Hey guys,

I was wondering what do yall think of this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I've been meaning to upgrade my machine and this board caught my eye for it wasn't expensive and it had some good specs and I was wondering who has own this board and what they think of it. Also, if anyone know of any good AMD boards that are FX cpu capable then let me know.

Also, the main use for this machine is for gaming.

Don't!, get a Phenom II 980. the only FX chip worth getting is a 8150 and maybe a 8120.... if you want quad core, get a Phenom II

Ok, what do you think about the motherboard?

just curious is more than 4 cores really needed? For a friend of mine has the Phenom II quad and plays everything great, so what would the point of getting something with more cores?

well future proof or handle more applications at one time... as for the motherboard if you already have it great!... If you haven't gotten it yet. get either the Sabertooth 990FX or the ROG 990FX
