Should i switch this MOBO for another?

Wondering if i should switch this MOBO for another because i will not be using the onboard video.
CPU is Phenom X4 965 and the Radeon 6850 videocard. Stay between $100-150 please.

  1. Your link doesn't work.

    These motherboards support the next generation AMD CPUs and have both crossfire and SLI.

    GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard - $139.99

    ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - $144.99

    GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard - $149.99 + $7.87 Shipping
  2. The reason the link doesn't work is because you copied an already compressed and embedded link. The key is that the product number is in regular (black) test instead of part of the blue text hyperlink.
  3. If building AMD, get a socket AM3+ board with a 900-series chipset. It will support a Bulldozer upgrade if desired, has all the latest ports and connectors, and will support SLI as well as Crossfire.
    I am using an Asus Sabertooth in my AMD machine: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131736 . I like the 5 year warranty, and I can't imagine finding any device any time soon that I wouldn't be able to connect to it. With a Xigmatek Gaia cooler, my X4 970BE oc'ed to 3.8GHz is currently idling at 31C.
    The cheapest one I'd consider is this ASRock fpr $105, because it supports Crossfire/SLI at x8,x8 rather than x16,x4: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157262

    Edit: added CPU.
