so whats would you buy if you was me ?
Well that's the thing. Because I am not you, I do not know the relative value you place on various options. Also, you have not clarified the purposes you have for you computer. I can only tell you what I would do, and why; and even that may not take into account your budget.
With what I have heard and read on driver issues and microstuttering, culminating in Toms' recent article: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-geforce-stutter-crossfire,2995.html
I am hesitant to suggest running Crossfire today
, but to have it as an option cannot be a bad thing, or if you go with nVidia graphics, to have the second PCIE x16 slot for a second card to do PhysX if that is (or ever becomes) important to you
. Accordingly, for the sake of budget, in your place I would accept a x16,x4 PCIE slot arrangement.
Your choice comes down to how important any future upgrades might be. If you either don't give a rat's behind about a potential Bulldozer upgrade, or wouldn't mind buying another mobo in a couple years, get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157176
for $60. It has reasonable expansion, is cheap, and can overclock. I've personally used this board a couple times, and have had no trouble from it. Tom's has used it in some SBM builds as well.
If you are more interested in maintaining an upgrade path, and want some better connectivity options, get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157262
for $105. That's probably the one I'd buy for a "budget" build myself, anticipating future expansion or improvement.
The one I DID buy, because I wanted the longer warranty, and any imaginable likely future option, is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131736
for $190, but I was going all-out on a system I hope will last for many years.
