Hey guys, I'm trying to decide between two Gigabyte motherboards, mainly the GA-970A-DS3 and GA-990FXA-UD3. My question mainly is which one would be better for a gaming computer build on a limited budget. The other parts I was going to get are:

AMD FX-8120 or AMD FX-8150
GeForce GTX 650
and 16GB of RAM I haven't decided on yet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

go for

AMD FX 8120
GA-970A-DS3
HD 6850 or HD 7770 as the GTX 650 is a horrible card especially for gaming
8GB DDR3 as 16GB is overkill 8GB is more than enough

Alright, thanks for the advice. I was primarily going for the GTX 650 because it's fairly new, and I wanted to get a computer that exceeds all the recommended system requirements of all the games out there right now, and would last for several years.

The GA-990FXA-UD3 is better without a question of a doubt, but you will have trouble finding one for anyware near the price of the otherone
